Environment & Society Portal

environment and society logo

The Environment & Society Portal is a gateway to open access resources about human participation in, and understandings of, the environment. It addresses the community of teachers and researchers in environment-related humanities, as well as the interested public. The Portal is the digital publication platform and archive of the Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society, a nonprofit joint initiative of the LMU Munich and the Deutsches Museum. As such, it reflects the research themes of the RCC and its fellows.
