Organisational unit: Research Grouping
This research cluster brands Bristol as the UK’s foremost research centre for the field. It unites Bristol’s diverse researchers from humanities and allied departments, capitalising on established expertise, several new Environmental Humanities hires, and others interested to develop new perspectives. The cluster builds on the existing activities of the well-established Environmental History Lunchtime Reading Group, and broadens the appeal of the successful Beastly Histories research cluster. It connects to the strong interdisciplinary links forged by the Cabot Institute and the Institution for Advanced Studies (UoB). We organise events, field trips and discussion spaces of interest to members, and provide a platform for collaborations with other institutions at home and abroad.
