Science can’t do it alone: the environment needs humanities too

Here’s a (belated) link to a short piece that I wrote for The Conversation in early October 2012.

The piece is about the emergence of the Environmental Humanities as an interdisciplinary field of scholarship, and the importance of humanities and social science research in deepening our knowledge of, and grappling with, environmental issues.

  1. Thanks for sharing this link. It reminds me of a great grant program in the U.S., where researchers have to work together to address a particular environmental problem (e.g., Arsenic in drinking water) along a continuum–everything from fate and transport to molecular biology to remediation technology to community outreach. It’s good to remember that we are all on the same team.
