Carnegie Mellon University

Environmental Humanities Research Seminar

The Environmental Humanities Research Seminar is a joint initiative that connects scholars at the University of Pittsburgh with their counterparts at Carnegie Mellon University. EHRS provides a cross-institutional, interdisciplinary venue where graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty share research with colleagues outside their immediate fields and engage in generous intellectual exchange.


After five years of seminars – the last two online – EHRS is taking a brief pause this academic year in order to assess the goals and format of the seminar.  To that end, we held an initial brainstorming meeting in November 2022, and we will meet again in February 2023 to identify a theme and event formats for AY 23-24.  Please join us in envisioning the future of EHRS as a cross-institutional, interdisciplinary endeavor.

Please contact the EHRS co-organizers for details of the planning meeting. In the meantime, we welcome your suggestions for agenda items and any questions you have about the workshop. Please contact both of us at our email addresses above.
