EH@UVA advances methods and knowledges of the humanities in support of collaborative, multi-disciplinary approaches to environmental research. Connecting scholars in the sciences and social sciences as well as humanities and arts, environmental humanities holds that understanding environmental questions requires engaging matters of history, interpretation, value, and criticism.
For faculty and graduate students from across the university who are working to develop hybrid, pluralist, or integrated research projects, EH@UVA holds regular seminars, convenes reading groups, develops transdisciplinary labs, mentors graduate students, and hosts public events.
