Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society

RCC Publications

RCC Perspectives has a new look! We have rebranded the journal to reflect the Rachel Carson Center's focus on "Transformations in Environment and Society." As always, it is dedicated to publishing accessibly written pieces that inspire new perspectives on humanity and the wider world and address questions about the interrelationship between environmental and social changes.

All issues are available online and free of charge. Visit the Perspectives page on the Environment & Society Portal to read currend or past issues and learn more about the series.

Anthropocene Exhibition

The Rachel Carson Center, together with the Deutsches Museum, is pleased to announce the extension of its special exhibition “Welcome to the Anthropocene: The Earth in Our Hands.” Located at the Deutsches Museum, the exhibition opened on 5 December 2014 and will now run until 30 September 2016.

The idea of the Anthropocene poses a new geologic era based on the consequences of human agency in nature. Through a wide range of displays and events, the exhibition provides an opportunity to engage and interact with this concept.

Carson Alumni Fellowships

Through its Carson Alumni Fellowships, the Society of Fellows offers several funding opportunities for both individual and collaborative projects.

The fellowships are intended to provide RCC Society of Fellows members with more time to work on a research project after their initial RCC fellowships. Learn more about Carson Alumni Fellowships.

Radical Environmentalism’s Print History

The Environment & Society Portal is proud to present a full-text searchable digital archive of the radical journals Earth First!, Wild Earth, ALARM and Live Wild or Die! These publications derive from the Earth First! movement, devoted to the idea that every life form and ecosystem has value apart from human interests. RCC alumnus Bron Taylor introduces the collection.
