The Environmental Humanities Research Cluster is an interdisciplinary group of faculty and graduate students interested in the intersections of ecology, environment and culture(s): energy humanities, ecocriticism, posthumanism, environmental philosophy and history, and urban and political ecologies.
In 2017–18, Iñaki Pradanos and Cathy Wagner were awarded Altman Fellowships from the Miami University Humanities Center to organize “Urban Futures”—a seminar and series of events exploring philosophical, cultural, and historical narratives grounding the social and material realities of urbanity. Visiting participants included Neil Brenner, Ananya Roy, Teju Cole, Teddy Cruz, Fonna Forman, Andrew Ross, Susan Larson, Alison Isenberg, and Miguel Robles-Duran.
The Environmental Humanities Research Cluster collaboratively extends the “Urban Futures” project’s goals, sponsoring scholarship and conversations toward a socially just and ecologically viable future.
Seminars and events occur frequently. Please contact a faculty coordinator to learn more.
