The Environmental Humanities brings science and culture into conversation. Drawing from literature, history, philosophy, religion, the arts, and other related fields, it asks how humans value and situate the world and their place as part of it. By deepening communication between what are often seen as distinct fields, the Environmental Humanities emphasizes the interconnectivity of our world, our actions, and our thinking. The Environmental Humanities looks at how people engage with environmental issues, considering particularly how we communicate, represent, and interact with the environment and how to respond to questions of global justice and sustainability.
