The Environmental Humanities Group, led by Iain McCalman (History) with colleagues from Archaeology, English, Gender and Cultural Studies, History, Government and IR, Macleay Museum, Sociology and Social Policy, have received a Faculty of Arts Collaborative Research Scheme grant.
This is a collaboration of seventeen Faculty of Arts scholars, from three Schools and six departments, who are currently researching environmental dimensions of cultural and urban history, English literature, archaeology, anthropology, sociology, politics, gender and women’s studies. They propose to focus this diffuse work into an integrated, interdisciplinary and socially relevant new field of ‘environmental humanities’.
