Edinburgh Environmental Humanities Institute

UBC English Researchers: Alexander Dick, Derek Gladwin

The Edinburgh Environmental Humanities Network is an exciting new initiative in the study of environmental issues. The network presents researchers within the humanities with a forum in which to engage with each other’s work, to share insights, and develop collaborative partnerships. We believe the humanities are uniquely positioned to complement responses to environmental issues in the hard sciences by addressing the values which underpin environmental decision-making, and therefore to evaluate the consequences of what are essentially problems of human interaction (with both the human and the non-human worlds).
