Rationale for Establishing the Association for East Asian Environmental History (AEAEH)

More than twenty scholars doing East Asian environmental history participated in the First World Congress of Environmental History convened by the International Consortium of Environmental History Organizations (ICEHO) in Copenhagen and Malmo during August 4-8, 2009. Because East Asia is not well represented among the current members of ICEHO, many of us who joined in a discussion during the conference agreed to form an association and named it the Association for East Asian Environmental History (AEAEH).

The AEAEH is an organization of individual members engaged in doing research on East Asian environmental issues with historical perspectives. Scholars from fields related to environmental studies, such as history, archaeology, literature, ethics, anthropology, geography, demography, economics, sociology, law, biology, ecology, agronomy, nutrition, medical science, public health, meteorology, geology, and engineering (energy, hydrology, municipal engineering), are all welcome to become members. Interdisciplinary approaches will be emphasized and within the sphere of East Asia a wide temporal span will be covered. Comparative studies, of course, will also be encouraged.
