Environmental Humanities

Delaware Humanities is offering an Environmental Humanities internship for the Spring of 2018.  This paid internship is for college students studying fields relating to the environment or the humanities to create programming for the public.  Download the application for more details.  Applications received by December 1, 2017 will be given first consideration.

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. The Environmental Humanities open these discussions for all of us, providing a framework for these important conversations. Delaware Humanities is excited to begin facilitating Environmental Humanities programs in our communities. Check this space for upcoming events.
