Public Outreach Project Award
ASEH will present the next Public Outreach Project Award in 2018. This award recognizes environmental history projects and programs that engage the public beyond the academy; help the public appreciate the role of the environment in the shaping of broader social, political, economic, and cultural issues; and/or have measureable impact on communities.
Eligible nominees include films, exhibitions, historic preservation, archaeology, community programs, and other similar work. Scholarly articles and books are excluded. The project should have been presented or initiated (if it is ongoing, such as a website or blog) between January 2016 (when our last award was selected) and the fall of 2017.
Nominations may be made by anyone, including those associated with the project. Nominations may be made for projects within and outside of the historical community and are not confined to work involving ASEH members.
How to Apply:
E-mail a description of no more than 500 words, explaining how it engages the public and advances understanding of environmental history. The description can include links to the project or links that further explain the project. Submissions from around the world are welcome, but the applications must appear in English.
E-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "ASEH Public Outreach Project Award Submission" by November 17, 2017.
The recipient will be notified in early 2018 and the award will be announced at ASEH's annual conference in Riverside, California in March of 2018.
