The center is named after the American biologist, nature writer, and environmentalist Rachel Carson, whose accessible writing raised awareness worldwide about threats to the environment and human health. The Rachel Carson Center aims to advance research and discussion concerning the interaction between human agents and nature, and to strengthen the role of the humanities in current political and scientific debates about the environment. By bringing together scholars who work in various disciplines and national contexts, and communicating the results of their research, the RCC seeks to internationalize environmental humanities and to raise its profile as a globally significant and growing field.
