The National Research University Higher School of Economics (HSE), Aarhus Univerisity, and SHT are organizing the workshop “Technology, natural resources and crises in the past and present of Europe and beyond”. The meeting takes place at HSE in Saint-Petersburg (Russia), October 21-22, 2016.
The workshop is designed to explore the crossroads between the history of technology, environmental history, the history of exploitation of natural resources in the past and present. The geographical scope of the workshop will cover Europe, its neighboring countries, and countries further afield that have been shaped by European markets and technology.
The workshop is part of the process that should result in a Tensions of Europe research group on environment and technology. It is envisaged as the first in a series of workshops to develop a future research program within the ToE network.St. Petersburgworkshop 2016 Back..
