Environmental Humanities is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal published by Duke University Press. The journal is edited by Thom Van Dooren, a professor of Gender of Cultural Studies at the University of Sydney, and Elizabeth DeLoughrey, an English professor at UCLA. 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 nine volumes to date. Recent articles explore conceptual ideas such as the politics of cancer and how the study of ice cores affects discourses of temporality. This journal also 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.
