Humanities and Sustainability
The Humanities Sustainability Research Project facilitates public and campus-wide reflection on the conflicting notions of what sustainability means, how it attaches to our values, histories, and imagination, and how it signifies ethically, ideologically, and culturally.
The program is run by the Portland Center for Public Humanities at Portland State University, with support from the Institute for Sustainable Solutions (formerly the Center for Sustainable Processes and Practices) and the James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation.
Faculty members affiliated with the project include:
Carl Abbott (Urban Studies and Planning)
Alastair Hunt (English)
Avram Hiller (Philosophy)
Greg Jacob (English)
William Lang (History)
Leerom Medovoi (English)
Frodo Okulam (Womens Studies)
Hillary Jenks (Honors)
