A message from the Environmental Humanities journal
We have four exciting pieces of news to share with the international environmental humanities community.
Firstly, we are delighted to announce that Elizabeth DeLoughrey (UCLA) is joining our Editorial Team as co-editor. After three great years, Deborah Bird Rose has decided to step down from the role. Thom van Dooren will continue as co-editor with Liz.
Secondly, we have formed a partnership with Duke University Press. As of 2016, Duke will take over publication of the journal. It will continue to be open access – all content completely free online.
Thirdly, the journal is now hiring four new Associate Editors to join the existing editorial team. Applications should be submitted by September 14, 2015. To learn more about the position, visit environmentalhumanities.org/call-for-associate-editors.
