Sophomore issues

May 21, 2013


The second volumes of Environmental Humanities and Animal Studies Journal are now online. Click through for essays on ecological cosmopolitanism and community, hunting and extinction, observatories and webcams, encounter and story, on the great cats of Vancouver and the war dogs of Vietnam, on those great environmentalists Rachel Carson and Arnold Schwarzenegger, and for a provocative screed by J. Baird Callicott on everything from the presocratics to postmodernism.


Environmental Humanities

November 15, 2012

Last night we launched the inaugural issue of Environmental Humanities, a new international, interdisciplinary, open-access journal. Its editors are Deborah Rose, vivifier of morals, and Thom van Dooren, avian entangler. I help make the coffee (and drink the wine). This first issue has essays on Oedipus, agriculture, parasites, burrs, management, seasons, flus, books, and mushrooms.

The website also features two series of interviews with editorial board members. I conducted the first lot about the anthropocene, decentring, and interdisciplinarity. Take a look; things get feisty.
