This symposium brings together scholars to address environmental issues in a global and collaborative cross-disciplinary framework that highlights the humanistic dimension of environmental study. Speakers will share their research projects, meet with local and regional clusters of scholars in the environmental humanities, develop agendas for collaborative publishing projects, and plan future workshops and/or conferences that highlight humanistic environmental scholarship. The aim of these activities is to deepen future transatlantic collaborations in the environmental humanities.
Transatlantic Dialogues on the Environment is sponsored by Simpson Center for the Humanities, the UW Departments of English and Germanics, and the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.
