About the Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society
The Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society (RCC) is an international, interdisciplinary center for research and education in the environmental humanities and social sciences.
A nonprofit institution, the RCC was founded in 2009 as a joint initiative of Munich's Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and the Deutsches Museum, with the generous support of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
Our namesake is the American biologist, nature writer, and environmentalist Rachel Carson, whose writing raised awareness worldwide about threats to the environment and human health. Learn more about the life and work of Rachel Carson here.
While we are based in Munich, Germany, our staff and fellows come from all over the world, and our working language is English.
