ESA Human Dimensions Workshop Report

The Human Ecology Section of the Ecological Society of America (ESA) ran a workshop funded by an ESA Long Range Section Development Grant. The workshop was titled ESA Human Dimensions, and was a gathering of a number of ESA sections with shared interests in and around the human dimensions of ecological change. It was held on the University of Louisville campus on 10 August 2019. A copy of the report and some proposed future directions for the initiative are posted on the HE@ESA section on this website, which is where SHE hosts ESA Human Ecology Section information.

You can access the report here.

2019 Membership Open Now

2019 membership fees for the Society for Human Ecology are now due. Membership is just US $70 regular and $35 for students and individuals from developing nations. Membership renewal and new members can register at

Human Ecology Review switched to open access online format in 2014, published by ANU Press.  Your membership dues help keep the journal free to both readers and authors, supporting the principle of open knowledge access. Since that time we have had 45,681 downloads from online issues with figures rising year on year – along with substantial ongoing downloads from previous issues.  

The SHEXXIII conference hosted by Universidade NOVA de Lisboa, July 7th to 10th, 2018, was an exciting and diverse meeting of nearly 400 participants representing 35 countries. Just eight months before that, SHE’s XXIInd  International Conference, at the University of the Philippines – Los Banos, Nov. 28 – Dec. 2, 2017, was likewise a successful gathering with over 300 delegates from 22 countries.  Your membership dues will help us improve the website and provide valuable content for both yourself and this international membership. This is especially important for individuals from developing nations who can struggle to access academic and community resources.

As we continue to broaden our horizons, we believe that SHE is especially well positioned to play a key role in stimulating and deepening fruitful collaborations among colleagues all over the world. Please join us.
