Environmental Humanities receives a total of 40 million
Linköping University has been awarded an additional 20 million for establishing a world-leading, multi-disciplinary cultural and environmental research programme. Among other things, funding is invested into research on chemical weapons that have been dumped on the Baltic seabed.
This is the largest investment in the humanities ever in Sweden. - The fact that we receive this grant shows that our nature-culture perspective is important. We need to have a deeper discussion about the role human actions have for nature, and the role nature has for her, says the manager of the programme, Cecilia Åsberg, associate professor and Head of Unit, Gender Studies.
