Our Reading Group

The Centre for Culture and Ecology Reading Group is a student-led group aimed to discuss, on a monthly basis, canonical and contemporary work in the field of Environmental Humanities.

It welcomes researchers working on or simply interested in environmental issues from a range of perspectives, including English Studies, Modern Languages and Cultures, Geography, Anthropology, History, Philosophy, Classics, and more. The reading group is an opportunity to examine and discuss questions relating to our work, and to the relationship between culture and the environment, as it has existed historically, and as it might be reimagined.
