The ecological humanities bring together ways of knowing and interacting with the world from the sciences and the humanities, as well as from indigenous and other ‘non-western’ worldviews, nourishing the connectivities and possibilities that these dialogues produce for people and the more-than-human environment.
This website is built around the ongoing work and other activities of a group of people who began their association at the Australian National University in Canberra, but are now working and researching all over Australia and the world.
We are dedicated to learning the interactions among humans as well as the interaction between humans and their environment. What effect do they have it? What effect does it have on them? The problem with doing a case study of this magnitude is that there are many different people as well as environments. This study is strictly focused on Southwest Florida environments and residents. It is a fascinating location to study because of the amount of tourism it receives. This provides excellent experimentation between how residents who live here interact with those who are “outsiders.” Same goes with the environment. How to the tourists effect the environment? Larger foot traffic? How does the environment effect them? Sun-burn? These are all things that we at Ecological Humanities are fascinated in study.
We want to extend a huge thank you to our local sponsors such as ICANSWFL, Palm River, and Heritage Bay real estate who have helped us tremendously to get this initiative off the ground! Please visit our sponsors page!
