STACEES -- Environmental Humanities @ St Andrews workshop
The St Andrews Network for Climate, Energy, Environment and Sustainability (STACEES) and the Scottish Arts and Humanities Alliance (SAHA)* invite members of the University research community working on or with an interest in the environmental humanities to this virtual workshop
We welcome participation from all career stages, including students. Colleagues and students who do not work in the environmental humanities are also welcome to attend to listen to the presentations and following conversations.
In the first hour, participants will briefly present their work (three-ten minutes, depending on the number of confirmed participants).
In the second hour, a discussion chaired by Professor Catherine O' Leary (School of Modern Languages and Co-Chair of SAHA) will focus on the importance of the environmental humanities for research on the environment, climate, energy and sustainability.
*SAHA is a joint initiative of Scottish Higher Education institutions, the Royal Society of Edinburgh and the Scottish Graduate School for Arts and Humanities. It was established to give a public and collective voice to the Arts and Humanities in the context of Higher Education. This new Alliance is designed to promote more widely the contribution of our disciplines to positive change in society, to economic progress and to cultural understanding. SAHA envisages a reflective alliance that sets agendas and responds to current concerns. One of its priority areas is climate and the environment.
