Many of us think the word “environment” exists in strictly scientific terms, from climate science to land management to agriculture to food. However, all of these issues occupy a space between science and the humanities. All of them are debated and discussed by writers, historians, philosophers, and political figures, in addition to chemists, biologists, and physicists. All of them intersect with the other crucial issues of American life: health, culture, religion, economics. Environmental Humanities opens these discussions for all of us, providing a framework for these important conversations.
