Developing an Environmental Humanities Minor

Development of a minor in environmental humanities.

Given the many environmental challenges faced by New Orleans and the wider Gulf South – coastal erosion, rising sea levels, ongoing subsidence, and industrial pollution, among others – the study of humans’ relationship to the environment is particularly pressing for Tulane students. In response to the environmental urgencies of our time and our unique location, we propose creating an Environmental Humanities minor at Tulane, a trademark of which will be new interdisciplinary courses team-taught by faculty in a wide range of fields. The courses in this new minor will consistently utilize New Orleans and the Gulf Coast region as case studies for meaningful experiential, place-based, and community engagement opportunities.
