The Eco-Humanities Research Group aims to bring the perspectives of the humanities to bear on the multiple interlocking ecological and existential crises of our time. We are a group of scholars from across and beyond the humanities disciplines whose work is concerned with climate and biodiversity crisis and with their far-reaching implications for values, ideologies, identities, and symbolic systems. Together, we explore how our work in the humanities can help individuals and communities, including communities of researchers in the natural and social sciences, to navigate the growing conceptual, emotional, ethical and other demands of contemporary ecological crises. We also consider the place of critical ecological awareness within humanities education at undergraduate and postgraduate level, and within transdisciplinary research.
