Environmental Humanities Research Seminar

EHRS is a place for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty to share research with colleagues outside their immediate fields and take part in generous, cross-disciplinary exchange. This year’s sponsors include the Steinbrenner Institute for Environmental Education and Research, the CMU Humanities Center, and the CMU History Department. 


After five years of seminars – the last two online – EHRS is taking a brief pause this fall in order to rethink the goals and format of the seminar.  To that end, there will be a planning meeting in October with a view to a workshop in spring 2023, where we hope to collaborate in envisioning possible futures for EHRS as a cross-institutional, interdisciplinary endeavor. This workshop will be followed by a new slate of programming for AY 23/24. 

Stay tuned 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.
