Über das Environment & Society Portal. Eine Zusammenfassung auf Deutsch.

The Environment & Society Portal is a nonprofit education, research, and outreach project that aims to make digital multimedia and interpretive materials in environmental humanities freely and openly accessible to academic communities and the interested public. We hope the Portal will cultivate the spirit of exploration and serendipity that characterizes research, allowing users to find--even in a digital environment--unexpected results. To this end, three custom-designed interactive navigation tools (map viewer, timeline, and keyword explorer) allow users to explore and discover the Portal's growing collections.

The Portal's logo, designed to evoke a tree ring, represents human participation in, engagement with, and understanding of the natural environment.

The Environment & Society Portal is a project of the Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society, a joint initiative of the LMU Munich (University of Munich) and the Deutsches Museum. The Rachel Carson Center is generously funded by the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research.
