Environment & Society Portal

The Environment & Society Portal (environmentandsociety.org) is the Rachel Carson Center’s open-access digital archive and publication platform. It makes environmental humanities research accessible to academic communities and the interested public worldwide, reaching more than one million users. In addition to its peer-reviewed born-digital publications (Arcadia and Virtual Exhibitions) and the Rachel Carson Center’s journal RCC Perspectives (now retired), the Portal curates scholarly and popular materials in its Multimedia Library. Users can explore this content via traditional searching and browsing, or by experimenting with the Portal’s three discovery tools (map, timeline, and keyword explorer) to find spatially, temporally, and thematically related results.

You can find out more about the Portal's history, in our Seeing the Woods interview with former Portal Director Kimberly Coulter. Read it here.
