CFP: “Environmental Histories of Ports”: 2015

The Centre for Port and Maritime History Annual Conference, this year on "The Environmental Histories of Ports and Ocean Trade," will take place in Liverpool on September 18-19, 2015. According to the call for papers,
Throughout history, humans have exchanged and traded in biological agents, specimens, and commodities, often with very dramatic and unequal effects on environments and ecologies, cultures, nations, and economies. . . . Building on a growing interest in integrating environmental history with other sub-disciplines, this two-day conference will reflect on environmental histories of port cities and ocean trade.
For a fuller description of the conference theme, please consult the complete call for papers. Propoals, for either single papers or full panels, should be sent to Andrew Popp at andrew.popp@liverpool.ac.uk by June 30, 2015.
