Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society

Master’s Students Present Their Final Projects

19 July 2016: At a special event, students of the RCC’s Environmental Studies Certificate Program will present their final projects. From ecologically engaged technology, horticulture, and urban planning to environmental portraits, activism, and conservation, this year’s projects cover a wide range of important issues.

We will also toast the success of four graduates of the RCC’s “Environment and Society” doctoral program who all recently defended their theses!

New Issue of Perspectives

The latest issue of RCC Perspectives is now available! Entitled “A Future Without Waste? Zero Waste in Theory and Practice,” this volume explores the opportunities and challenges posed by the concepts and startegies of zero waste. An interdisciplinary team of authors examines the question: How realistic are visions of a future without waste?

This issue is available online and free of charge. Visit the Perspectives page on the Environment & Society Portal to read current 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.

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.

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.
