Katharina Gerstenberg, Current Environmental Humanities Research Professor (2019-2021)



Katharina Gerstenberger


Grounded in the interdisciplinarity of Environmental Humanities, Professor Gerstenberger's work looks at non-scientific responses to pressing environmental issues that neither predict doom nor express denial.
