Tamara Whited, Department of History, traveled to Lavin, Switzerland, in mid-August 2013 to participate as a faculty instructor in an environmental history summer school geared toward the needs of mid-level graduate students from Europe and North America.

She made a brief presentation on the challenges of environmental history, but largely engaged with graduate students and faculty on recent methodologies of environmental history and alpine environmental histories.

Sponsoring organizations include the European Society for Environmental History, the Rachel Carson Center of Munich, the University of Zurich, the International Association for Alpine History, the Commission Internationale pour la Protection des Alpes, and the Swiss National Park.

She then spent several days in Munich attending the annual meeting of the European Society for Environmental History.
