The International Panel on Environmental History & Policy (EnvHist4P) is a global network of interdisciplinary scientists researching the relationship between past societies and their environmental history. The network is concerned in particular with past societal responses and adaptations to environmental stress, especially climatic change and epidemics from Antiquity to the Industrial Revolution and the onset of the Anthropocene. Our postdoctoral researcher screens ongoing and planned consultations and policy debates within the EU and key European national states (and in the UN and the US federal government and agencies. In cooperation with experts involved in the EnvHist4P network, we will identify the debates/consultations that have the greatest need of environmental history and archaeology expertise.
