UIC Institute for the Humanities


The Political Ecologies Working Group is a cross-disciplinary platform for faculty and students interested in engaging with questions that relate to social movements, the environment, biodiversity, ecological activism, human rights, cultural heritage, environmental justice, and public humanities. It responds to the desire of UIC faculty and students for engagement and collaboration with local communities in the global contexts of development. 

Working Group organizers have set up a web page that can serve as the public face of the group, a place where we can post announcements, post short blog entries, run discussions etc. Please send Omur (omur@uic.edu) materials when you'd like to post them.
