New Book: Long-Term Socio-Ecological Research (LTSER):
How to Study Society – Nature Interactions Across Spatial and Temporal Scales.
Edited by Simron Jit Singh, Helmut Haberl, Marian R. Chertow, Michael Mirtl, Martin Schmid, Springer, 2013.
Over the last half century, exceptional changes in the environment have placed renewed importance on the study of society-nature interactions. Around the globe, ever increasing human demands on ecosystems not only harm the environment, but also induce great potential for social conflict. In this sense sustainability problems are not only “ecological” but “socio-ecological” since the ways societies interact with the environment affects both ecosystems and social systems.
The emerging interdisciplinary field of Long-Term Socio-Ecological Research (LTSER) is primarily concerned with questions of global environmental change and sustainability. It aims to conceptualise, observe, analyse, and model changes in coupled socio-ecological systems over generations. Tracking these changes over extended periods is accomplished in research traditions that include social and human ecology, industrial ecology, environmental history, human geography and anthropology. LTSER aims to provide a knowledge base that helps reorient socioeconomic trajectories towards more sustainable pathways.
The authors of the just published volume make a case for LTSER’s potential in providing insights, knowledge and experience necessary for a sustainability transition. Contributions from Europe and North America review the development of LTSER since its inception and assess its current state. Through many case studies, this book gives the reader a greater sense of where we are and what needs to be done to engage in and make meaning from long-term, place-based and cross-disciplinary engagements with socio-ecological systems.

Global SCP Clearinghouse
The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), as the Secretariat of the 10-Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production, is starting a one-stop hub dedicated to advancing Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) worldwide. The Global SCP Clearinghouse is a harmonized and dynamic information and knowledge platform that will facilitate and trigger more innovation and cooperation towards SCP implementation. Today, in a context of increasing environmental degradation and climate change, it is clear that a systemic change is needed to move towards resource efficient and sustainable lifestyles. This requires the participation and action of all: governments to the business sector, civil society and citizens. During the pre-launching phase (till May) you can: Sign up and become a member to be among the first ones connected to the Global SCP Clearinghouse; Register as an expert or resource person; Share information about your SCP initiatives – policies, partnerships, projects, etc. to feed the worldwide SCP initiatives database.

54. ZUG- Minisymposium: Ellen Arnold
Ellen Arnold, Assistant Professor of History, Ohio Wesleyan University will give a talk on „A Daughter of the Rhine“: Rivers and Identity in Gallo-Roman Poetry“
Abstract: „This presentation will attempt to assess the „environmental imagination“ of the early middle ages in Gaul by examining the poems, letters, and religious writings of three men. Ausonius, Sidonius Apollinaris, and Venantius Fortunatus. They were all active writers and also political and religious figures during the 300s-500s, and all members of what we now call the “Gallo-Roman elite.” All three of these men lived for much or most of their adult lives in Gaul, and all found themselves at least partially pulled between the culture of distant Rome and the immediacy, vibrancy, and beauty of Gaul – the “New Frontier” of Late Antiquity. Finally, all three wrote poems, letters, and other works that explicitly describe, discuss, and praise the natural and built environments of Gaul, and especially its rivers.
I will discuss the ways in which the poets described and used rivers in their writings, and how rivers helped them to present and negotiate complex issues of ethnic, cultural, and political identity. The rivers of Gaul, on the one hand fixed and permanent, on the other always shifting and changing their courses, came to stand in for the problems of defining, marking, and bounding the many ethnicities of the Roman and post-Roman world.“

55. ZUG-Minisymposium: Robert W. B. Gray
Dr. Robert W. B. Gray, Keele University will give a talk on „Learning to Live with the Danube:
Local Institutions and Community Knowledge in the Gemenc and Sárköz regions of Hungary in the Nineteenth Century“
Abstract: „The control of riparian resources along the Danube formed an essential part of Hungarian rural life since the thirteenth century. In a land dominated by water, the reed-beds, water-meadows, alluvial forests and side channels that characterized the extensive flood plains provided both a vital supplement to the peasants’ regular holdings and a significant source of income for their lords. Access to these common resources were regulated by village and estates institutions and governed by a complex mix of practice, custom and statute law. Following the revolution of 1848 and the end of Hungary’s old rural order, traditional means of regulation that emphasised communal rights were supplanted by statute laws and state institutions. Furthermore, as river regulation gathered speed from the late eighteenth century, first under the auspices of the ‘enlightened absolutist’ rulers in Vienna and subsequently the reformist government in Pest-Buda, local concerns were threatened by the wider interests of state and nation. This paper will investigate how communities within the Gemenc and Sárköz region of Hungary adapted their everyday practices, institutions and customs to account for the shifting riparian environment of the Danube. In this, it will reveal how customary practices and institutions – the repositories of community knowledge – adapted to and were accommodated within the competing interests of lords, state officials and experts during the breakdown of Hungary’s old rural order in the nineteenth century.“

IRP Trade (UNEP 2012): Trade, development and pressures upon the environment
We wish to understand the impact of world trade on the size and distribution of environmental pressures, and therefore focus on the physical dimensions of trade. From a global perspective, it would be desirable that all resources were extracted and commodities were produced where they exert the least environmental pressure. If international trade were structured in a way that supports this optimally, it would support the decoupling of resource use and environmental impacts from economic activity on a global level (UNEP, 2011). If international trade, by contrast, were structured mainly by relations of economic and political power, it would concentrate also the environmental benefits with the high income nations, and externalize the environmental pressures to low income peripheries. World trade would then be creating structures far from a global optimum of minimal environmental pressure. This is the key distributional question we will pursue throughout this assessment for the International Resource Panel of UNEP, and we will look at the international structures of direct trade in material terms as well as at the upstream requirements of trade flows in material resources, energy and CO2 emissions, human appropriation of net primary production, and land.

Workshop „Luigi Ferdinando Marsili (1658-1730) and the Contemporary Fascination for the Telluric Reign: Transdisciplinary Perspectives from History to Science“
This project aimed at bridging the gap between sciences and humanities, creating a unique interdisciplinary platform where the manifold early modern manifestations of interest in the telluric world were discussed in their biophysical and socio-cultural historical contexts. Luigi Ferdinando Marsili offered an excellent example for such an endeavour. A workshop funded by the Fritz Thyssen Stiftung and held in Vienna in April 2012 explored the environmental, scientific, economic, and imaginary dimensions of historical thinking about the soil and the subterranean. This project was led by Martin Schmid together with Rengenier Rittersma, a historian of science and food from the Netherlands.
