The Environmental Humanities approach the study of the non-human world from the humanistic disciplines – literature, creative writing, religious studies, philosophy, history, classics, comparative humanities, and the arts.

At Bucknell, faculty and staff from across these disciplines gather to share research, discuss ideas, offer programs and courses, showcase student scholarship, and develop new initiatives.

More Student Scholarship: New Place Papers

Students from “American Environmental History” write “Place Papers,” in the fashion of William Cronon’s assignment. The challenge of the essay is to bring a fresh, historical perspective on a landscape familiar, even dear, to students. Some of the student work has been published in Bucknell’s student journal, Eidos.
