Visiting Scholars

The Environmental Humanities Program brings a diverse array of environmental thinkers to our community. We also showcase current University faculty across a variety of humanities and scientific disciplines. Students connect with these scholars and we cultivate personal interaction and intellectual engagement with all of our visitors.
