Franz Mauelshagen is a Climate and Environmental Historian working at Bielefeld University (since August 2020). In the last decade he has developed a record of experience in interdisciplinary research collaborations on multiple issues of anthropogenic climate change, climate history, sustainability and the Anthropocene. In this period, he was also awarded Fellowships at the Rachel Carson Center (Munich), the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (Potsdam) and the Centre for Global Cooperation Research (University of Duisburg-Essen). Mauelshagen has published more than 120 articles related to early modern and modern history in general. With regard to climate, his published work addresses issues such as the Little Ice Age, climate migration, the history of climate governance and climate science. He has authored a textbook on modern climate history (since 1500, in German) and co-edited the Palgrave Handbook of Climate History (2018).

Eleonora Rohland is Professor for Entangled History in the Americas at Bielefeld University and Director of its Center for InterAmerican Studies (CIAS) Her research links environmental and climate history with the history of inter-American and transatlantic entanglements during the colonial era. This also includes studying the 'pre-history of the Anthropocene' and the particular role of the Americas in these early anthropocenic processes. Rohland is a principal investigator in the Bielefeld collaborative research center (SFB) 1288 "Practices of Comparing: Ordering and Changing the World" and co-coordinator of the research group "Coping with Environmental Crises" at the Maria Sibylla Merian Center for Advanced Latin American Studies (CALAS) in Guadalajara (Mexico). Her latest publications are Changes in the Air: Hurricanes in New Orleans from 1718 to the Present (2019) and ¿Historia entrelazada y el medio ambience? Transformaciones socioambientales en el caribe, 1492-1800 (2020), English version: Entangled Histories and the Environment? Socioenvironmental Transformations in the Caribbean, 1492-1800 (forthcoming 2021).
