Environmental Humanities South
Environmental Humanities South is an interdisciplinary research group and postgraduate training programme established in 2015



An interdisciplinary research cluster and postgraduate programme in the Faculty of Humanities

Ranging from scientific modelling to government policy, from social justice movements to the creative arts, it examines questions of sustainability, human wellbeing and the environment in their broadest sense.  In a 21st-century context of increasing pressure on the biosphere, the environmental humanities provide a vital intellectual space that enables researchers, students, artists, writers, scientists, policy-makers and practitioners to reflect critically on the concepts that underlie contemporary environmentalism.
