The Environmental Humanities

The 2019-20 theme for the Humanities Center is the Environmental Humanities.  Events focus on interdisciplinary research and creative activity pertaining to the environment, encompassing history, philosophy, ecocriticism, cultural geography and anthropology, as well as literature and the arts. Centering on the issues of rapid environmental and social change, we seek to draw a range of humanities disciplines into conversation with each other on this topic, as well as with the natural and social sciences.
