Climate History Network

A network of interdisciplinary scholars studying past climate change

New Website: The “Environment and Society Portal”

The Environment and Society Portal is a non-profit education and research project created by the Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society, jointly initiated by the LMU Munich and the Deutsches Museum. It aims to provide open access to environmental humanities materials and targets an academic audience as well as the interested public. The page architects expressly encourage users’ contributions to the portal “to cultivate the spirit of exploration and serendipity that characterizes research.” For starters, three interactive navigation tools, the map viewer, the timeline tool and the keyword explorer will guide you through “a small but fascinating selection of digital multimedia and interpretive features.” Enjoy!
