<div>Few ASEH members will have missed the fact that the next president of the American Historical Association will be one of our own, Bill Cronon.&nbsp;No prior AHA president has been a member, let alone a former president, of ASEH, although some have had interests that might be termed environmental.&nbsp;Indeed, one former AHA president, who served exactly one century before Bill, had environmental interests and although born too early to take part in ASEH did do a stint as president of the United States.&nbsp;His visage is etched into Mt. Rushmore.&nbsp;No prizes for correctly identifying him.</div><br /><div>The AHA presidency can be a ceremonial office but need not be.&nbsp;Early indications are that Bill will promote environmental history - especially at the 2013 annual meeting of the AHA in New Orleans.&nbsp;The official theme of the New Orleans meeting (January 3-5, 2013) will be "Lives, Places, Stories," which opens doors for environmental historians.&nbsp;Bill recruited another ASEH member, Paul Sutter of the University of Colorado, to serve as Chair of the 2013 AHA Program Committee.&nbsp;The Chair of the Local Arrangements Committee for the 2013 meeting will be yet another ASEH member, Craig Colten of Louisiana State University.&nbsp;The stars are aligned for environmental historians to shine before the AHA audience as never before.&nbsp;</div><br /><div>Environmental history in the U.S. has come of age and the 2013 AHA meeting offers us our best chance yet to show it to the broader community of historians.&nbsp;I urge one and all to think about how to seize that opportunity.&nbsp;</div><br /><div>We will serve our own interests best by turning our skills as environmental historians to subjects that the broader community of historians cares about.&nbsp;&nbsp;We can gently challenge our fellow historians to think in new - environmental - ways about old and iconic subjects: the American Revolution, slavery, the New Deal, or the Cold War.&nbsp; Or, to put it in more global terms: the Ming-Qing transition, the reign of Peter the Great, the Mfecane, or the rebellion of Tupac Amaru.&nbsp;<strong>The deadline for panel and paper proposal submissions is February 15, 2012</strong>, almost upon us.&nbsp;As historians know better than anyone, there is no time like the present.</div><br /><div>-John McNeill, ASEH President</div><br /><div>[for additional information, see the "announcements" section of this newsletter below]</div></td></tr></table><a name="LETTER.BLOCK17" /><table style="margin-bottom:10px;" border="0" width="100%" cellpadding="10" cellspacing="0" id="content_LETTER.BLOCK17"><tr><td style="color:#000000;font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:12pt;TEXT-ALIGN: left" rowspan="1" colspan="1" align="left">

The first step to using LinkedIn is to set up a personal profile. Once you have completed this, you can begin connecting with members who share an interest in this your title, society, or research area. LinkedIn further offers profile-based, pay-per-click (PPC) advertising similar to Facebook, so you can run targeted ad campaigns to promote your title or society.</div>

<div style="FONT-FAMILY: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; COLOR: #000000; FONT-SIZE: 12pt">
<ul><li>Showcase thought leadership</li><li>Post frequent updates: a good rule of thumb is weekly for blogs/YouTube, and daily for Facebook/Twitter</li><li>Be friendly and casual: social posts will appear among posts from users' friends and family</li><li>Be human: have a perspective and a voice</li><li>Be concise: get to the point before losing readers' interest</li><li>Be timely: respond to comments and queries as soon as possible<br />Use social etiquette: acknowledge sources and give credit where it's due via attributions, retweets, and so on; follow others and they may follow you</li><li>Stick to what you know: when writing a blog article, stick to your areas of expertise</li></ul></div>
<div style="FONT-FAMILY: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; COLOR: #000000; FONT-SIZE: 12pt">DONT's:

<p style="MARGIN-TOP: 0px; MARGIN-BOTTOM: 0px">As many of you know, William Cronon is the president-elect of the American Historical Association, and he will preside over the 127th AHA Annual meeting in January 2013.&nbsp;Bill has asked John McNeill and me to serve as Co-Chairs of the Program Committee and Craig Colten to serve as the Local Arrangements Chair.&nbsp;The conference theme - "Lives, Places, Stories" - is meant, among other things, to encourage proposals from environmental historians.&nbsp;This is an important opportunity to highlight the growth and vibrancy of our field, and so we hope that many of you will consider submitting proposals.&nbsp;Below is an abbreviated version of the conference theme statement as well as a links to the full theme statement as well as the recently issued Call for Proposals.</p>
<p style="MARGIN-TOP: 0px; MARGIN-BOTTOM: 0px">&nbsp;</p>
<p style="MARGIN-TOP: 0px; MARGIN-BOTTOM: 0px">"The 2013 annual meeting convenes from January 3-6, 2013, in New Orleans, which has one of the most unusual natural and cultural histories of any city in the United States. Indeed, it would be hard to imagine a better place for the AHA to explore the many insights we gain when we study human history in its environmental and geographical contexts. Our theme for this conference, "Lives, Places, Stories," is meant to encourage proposals from scholars who explore the roles of environment and geography in all aspects of human history. But we also intend this theme to be broad enough that any scholar working on any topic with any approach in any place at any time will feel fully welcome to propose papers or sessions that meet its capacious spirit.&nbsp; The Program Committee also welcomes and will seriously consider proposals that do not fall under the scope of our chosen theme, as our overarching goal is to make the AHA annual meeting a showplace for the very best in historical practice."</p>

<div style="FONT-FAMILY: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; COLOR: #000000; FONT-SIZE: 12pt">Turku is far enough north to have very long days at midsummer, but far enough south to have temperatures seasonable even by the standards of east coast America. As is the case at ASEH conferences, the panels demonstrated the diversity of the research topics encompassed under the rubric of environmental history. The distribution of topics was somewhat different, however.&nbsp; <br /></div>
<div style="FONT-FAMILY: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; COLOR: #000000; FONT-SIZE: 12pt"><br /></div>
<div style="FONT-FAMILY: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; COLOR: #000000; FONT-SIZE: 12pt">Predictably enough, the geographical focus was on Europe, although this focus was far from exclusive; in addition non-recent history received a larger share of attention than it usually does at the ASEH.&nbsp;Statistically based research also figured in a larger proportion of papers, reflecting the distinctive evolution of the field of environmental history in Europe.&nbsp; (These comparisons, however, are not statistically based; on the contrary, they are completely impressionistic.)<br /></div>

<div style="FONT-FAMILY: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; COLOR: #000000; FONT-SIZE: 12pt">The keynote talks were similarly varied.&nbsp; Sverker Sorlin spoke on nature in Nordic painting, Rudolf Brazdil on historical climatology,&nbsp; Helen Rozwadowski on land metaphors applied to the sea, Stephen Mosley on coastal cities and climate change, and Susan Flader on the Leopold ethic in the 21st century.</div>

<div style="FONT-FAMILY: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; COLOR: #000000; FONT-SIZE: 12pt">The conference schedule included generous breaks between sessions, and ASEH took advantage of one of them to host a mid-afternoon reception outside the book display.&nbsp;Nancy Langston, the new editor of <em>Environmental History,</em> spoke to the crowd about&nbsp;plans for the journal and urged people to submit manuscripts and queries.<br /></div>
