The Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society (RCC) is excited to announce the launch of its blog,
With Seeing the Forest, the RCC hopes to enhance the online influence of the environmental humanities and help extend its reach. By showcasing innovative research, valuable resources and provocative expert commentary, the blog will demonstrate the relevancy and importance of infusing humanistic and historical perspectives into discussions about today’s environmental challenges. The RCC seeks to provide context that will help reveal the bigger picture, or “the forest,” explaining the long and complex relationship between humans and nature.
It is also seeking contributions from scholars, students and professionals in the environmental humanities field. Contributions will reach a diverse and international audience, and will help to infuse environmental discussions with humanistic and historical perspectives. For more on becoming a contributor the RCC’s submission guidelines.
