Resilience is a digital, peer-reviewed journal of the Environmental Humanities. It provides a forum for scholars from across humanities disciplines to speak to one another about their shared interest in environmental issues, and to plot out an evolving conversation about what the humanities contributes to living and thinking sustainably in a world of dwindling resources.
A mode of seeing, describing, and analyzing the cultural texts, events, and political and social desires shaping our current and possible relationships to the analytic category of environmentalism. An invitation to think both against and with other disciplines, to improvise a common conversation, to stake out and describe an environmental sensibility that can account for transformations in key terms like “knowledge,” “nature,” “humanities,” and “culture.”
In 2014, we published short manifestos from leading environmental humanities scholars on what the word “resilience” means to them. Please download our inaugural issue through Project Muse or JSTOR to read their responses.
