Environmental Humanities

The Environmental Humanities Group is a collaboration of scholars from across the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences who are currently researching environmental dimensions of cultural and urban history, English literature, archaeology, anthropology, sociology, politics, gender and women’s studies. We propose to focus this diffuse work into an integrated, interdisciplinary and socially relevant new field of ‘environmental humanities’. Our collaboration will build an enduring cohort of University staff and postgraduate students to shape and disseminate a new national research agenda for this emergent and portentous field.
