The node and the research theme
The Department of Arts and Cultural Sciences host the multidisciplinary EcoCultures research node. The researchers involved do research in the emerging field of Environmental Humanities. The node is a meeting point where scientific competences intersect to become catalytic and produce cultural perspectives on environmental research questions. The age of the humankind, the Anthropocene, calls the humanities to arms in the fields where the natural and technical sciences dominated the scene so far. Our contribution is analysis across multiple scales of time and space in order to interpret and intervene in environmental policy understood from a cultural humanities outlook.
