Breadcrumb Navigation



The Rachel Carson Center is committed to supporting the publication of state-of-the-art research in the environmental humanities that bridges national and disciplinary divides.

The RCC Editorial and Communications Team currently publishes Springs: The Rachel Carson Center Review, a biannual online publication for peer-reviewed articles, creative nonfiction, and artistic constributions in the field of the environmental humanities, which debuted in July 2022. Its archive curates articles of RCC Perspectives, Seeing the Woods, and the peer-reviewed online journal Arcadia: Explorations in Environmental History.

From 2010 to 2020, the center produced RCC Perspectives: Transformations in Environment and Society, an online venue for the diverse perspectives on environmental research coming out of RCC-related scholarly activities.

From 2013 to 2021, the RCC also published the online blog Seeing the Woods, which aimed to shift the focus of environmental research to reveal the bigger picture by looking at the complex relationship between human and nonhuman nature from different fields, such as history, ecocriticism, anthropology, and philosophy.

The RCC is involved in the editorial and review process for both the English-language books series The Environment in History: International Perspectives and the German-language book series Umwelt und Gesellschaft.

The Center also supports its fellows and staff in the publication of their work with other publishers.
