Academic Editor(s): Dolly Jørgensen, Franklin Ginn

Environmental Humanities is a peer-reviewed, international, open-access journal. The journal publishes outstanding interdisciplinary scholarship that draws humanities disciplines into conversation with each other, and with the natural and social sciences, around significant environmental issues. Environmental Humanities has a specific focus on publishing the best interdisciplinary scholarship; as such, the journal has a particular mandate to:

1. Publish interdisciplinary papers that do not fit comfortably within the established environmental subdisciplines, and

2. Publish high-quality submissions from within any of these fields that are accessible and seeking to reach a broader readership.

Articles are published under a Creative Commons license (BY-NC-ND) and are open immediately upon publication. Authors are not charged any fees for publication and retain copyright in their articles. Readers may use the full text of articles as described in the license.


Management and Oversight

Environmental Humanities is funded and managed by a collaborative partnership between Arizona State University, USA; Concordia University, Canada; Environmental Humanities Laboratory, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden; Sydney Environment Institute, University of Sydney, Australia; University of California, Los Angeles, USA;  and University of Connecticut, USA.

The journal is overseen by a Management Committee, currently comprising two editors and the following partner representatives: Jeffrey Cohen (Arizona), Jill Didur (Concordia),  Robin Derby (UCLA), Sabine Höhler (KTH), Elspeth Probyn (Sydney), and Helen Rozwadowski (Connecticut).


The Living Lexicon

The Living Lexicon is a series of 1,000-word essays on keywords in the environmental humanities that highlight how each term can move the field forward under the dual imperative for critique and action.
