About this issue

How can scholars from the humanities and social sciences make their work relevant beyond academic publications? This volume of RCC Perspectives attempts to bridge the gap between humanities research and public policy, using examples from memory studies to illuminate and explore how society can employ lessons from the past in discussions about conserving historic landscapes and building resilience to ecological and humanitarian disasters.
