On the occasion of the 3rd WCEH, Florianopolis, Brazil, The Environmental History Cluster Austria will hand out its first EHCA Prize:
The aim and scope of the prize is to acknowledge conceptual and empirical approaches to environmental history, which are interdisciplinary and contribute significantly to advancing the field as an interdisciplinary endeavour. While environmental history tends to use the data of a large range of disciplines as their sources, and hence often is multi-disciplinary, some approaches are made possible because of a very intense integration of concepts, approaches, methods and data from various disciplines. Such work needs an extra effort and is often bound to teams, a form or organisation of research that the historical profession has taken up less than other disciplines.
