The Environment & Society Portal offers access to articles, images, and recordings about how people interact with the environment.
The Environmental Humanities Project, based at Stanford University, showcases research conducted by "humanities scholars in disciplines such as cultural studies, history, literary studies, philosophy and anthropology that has engaged with environmental problems, and explores how this research contributes to current discussions about ecological crisis."
