Do you want to learn more about publicly engaged research? Those of us in the ENHANCE network are finalising the program for our School in Public Environmental Humanities. The school will take place in different parts of Stockholm during October 2 – 6, 2017, but will be located primarily around the KTH Royal Institute of Technology.
The school will focus on the theme of public environmental humanities. In that spirit, we invite an additional eight students to participate in the school. We hope that PhD students (or Master students and post-docs) from a variety of backgrounds will apply and be part of the school.
The ENHANCE students and instructors themselves represent a great deal of disciplinary and interdisciplinary training, in fields such as anthropology, creative writing, history, geography, marine policy, literature, STS, and social science. So, come join a growing network of environmental humanities scholars!
