About the Programme

Oulu’s Environmental Humanities Programme is a growing, interdisciplinary initiative which brings together scholars and students who share an interest in the intricate relationship between humans and the environment. The Programme’s members include researchers and postgraduates from across various disciplines and research groups in the humanities and social sciences, including history, philosophy, cultural anthropology and human geography.

The Programme helps coordinate a series of active, interconnected educational initiatives and research projects, including regular research seminars, visiting lectures and group workshops to bolster dialogue across disciplinary boundaries. Upcoming events include:

Fifth National Finnish Conference on History Research (24-26 October 2019), two panels on environmental history organized by the Programme's members.

New course announced: Human/nature: Interdisciplinary anthropologies of environment and ecology (Autumn 2019).
