Environmental humanities is a relatively new discipline. "The field is fundamentally interdisciplinary, and often includes collaborations with the sciences, social sciences and various areas of the humanities," says Andrea Most, a professor of American literature and environmental studies in the Department of English and a graduate faculty member at the School of the Environment.

There has been a shift in recent years, from explaining environmentalist thought to examining the relationship between nature and culture.

In U of T's Arts & Science News, Professor Most discusses environmental humanities and how changing our view of humans' place in the world might just save the planet.
