Environmental Humanities is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal published by Duke University Press. The journal is led by editors Dolly Jorgensen (University of Stavanger, Norway) and Franklin Ginn (University of Bristol, UK). Environmental Humanities publishes interdisciplinary scholarship, including work by scholars of the humanities and the natural and social sciences, to address environmental topics. This international journal began publication in 2012 and has published 12 volumes to date. Additionally, the journal publishes the "Living Lexicon for the Environmental Humanities," a series of 1,000-word essays that explore and evaluate particular keywords. For instance, in one such essay, Serpil Opperman, an English scholar at Hacettepe University in Ankara, Turkey, considers how the term installation may "[open] a space to rethink the Anthropocene in terms of effective empathy for the Earth." Environmental Humanities would be of interest to scholars of many disciplines, from environmental studies to semiotics and beyond.
