Humanities For the Environment

Change. Challenge. Engagement. Sustainability.

The CHCI member network Humanities for the Environment serves as a network and resource for centers to develop (or extend) programming, research and dialogue related to contemporary environmental challenges. Many of our CHCI centers have done substantial work in these and related areas already; humanists and artists have long engaged issues related to sustainability, climate change, and the human/environment relationship as a whole.

The newly established Humanities for the Environment website is designed to support the work of this group. The website will serve as a locus of information about the projects and shared interests of our members, and will provide a growing set of resources on environmental discourse as it relates to the humanities.

The Humanities for the Environment team will be updating the site regularly with new resources and news, and we hope to use the site to maintain an ever more useful basis for dialogue. As you will see, the site includes space for streaming video projects from our members, and among the significant uses of the site will be to disseminate information on CHCI member programs.

The site is also designed to be a forum for linking all of us to broader currents and news in the humanities and beyond. The group would love to hear from you whenever you come across a relevant topic, event, or article, or if your organization is working on projects in the broadly defined thematic area of the environment. The website provides an easy way to submit information to our webmaster, and you may also subscribe to the site’s RSS feed to receive notifications of new posts.

You can access the already content-rich website here: http://initiatives.chcinetwork.org/environment/
