mission statement

The American Society for Environmental History (ASEH) advances understanding of human interactions with the natural world by promoting historical research and teaching, and fostering dialogue about human use of the earth among humanists, social and environmental scientists, and the public. Its efforts benefit humankind by illuminating the past and providing perspective on current environmental issues.

ASEH promotes these interests globally through its peer-reviewed journal Environmental History, annual conferences, scholarly awards and fellowships, online discussions, conversations with other professional societies, and public outreach. 

vision statement

Environmental Historians seek to understand the complex entanglements of humans and the rest of nature over time. By fostering such inquiry, the American Society for Environmental History, aims to broaden debate about the desirability, possibilities, and prospects of enhancing sustainability and reducing environmental and social injustice.
