Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society. Seeing the Woods (blog).

Seeing the Woods is produced by the Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society (RCC), an international and interdisciplinary research center devoted to the environmental humanities. Its contributors include the RCC’s staff and fellows, as well as external contributors from this multi-disciplinary community. The mission of  the blog is to demonstrate the relevancy and importance of humanistic and historical perspectives in discussions about today’s environmental challenges. We seek to provide context that will help reveal the bigger picture, or “the woods,” explaining the long and complex relationship between humans and nature. In doing so, Seeing the Woods showcases innovative research, valuable resources and provocative commentary from experts in fields such as history, eco-criticism, anthropology, and philosophy, to name a few.
