Welcome to the Arcadia Project

Arcadia, a collaboration of the RCC and the ESEH, publishes short, peer-reviewed environmental histories.

About the Arcadia Project

"Arcadia: Online Explorations in Environmental History" is a collaboration of the Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society (RCC) and the European Society for Environmental History (ESEH). Arcadia's short environmental histories on specific topics--like how Danube floods created telegraph networks, or how the European Green Belt transformed a zone of death into one of conservation--give researchers a way to share new work with peers and general audiences online. Each peer-reviewed article includes a profile of the researcher, links, and suggested readings.
