The Environmental Humanities Initiative (EHI) at UC Santa Barbara is sponsoring a virtual conference on climate change that will be held from May 3-24, 2016. The advantages of holding a virtual conference are that it will reduce the conference’s carbon footprint and will encourage wider participation. Speakers will submit a video of themselves giving a 15-17 minute talk and will participate in Q&A sessions. Papers from all fields of the humanities and social sciences that innovatively deal with climate change are welcomed. Abstracts of 250 words and a brief biographical note should be submitted by March 1, 2016 to EHCfellow@gmail.com. For more information please see http://ehc.english.ucsb.edu/?p=12048.
