Stephanie LeMenager

Professor of English Literature, University of Oregon

Over the years, my career has developed toward environmental cultural studies and the public humanities, through programming and outreach work at my former university and through my founding roles in varied green public humanities ventures, namely the environmental humanities journal Resilience, co-founded with Professor Stephanie Foote of the University of Illinois.

I see the potentialities of the environmental humanities as a hugely exciting if as-yet underdeveloped interdisciplinary field, in terms of prospects for cross-field collaboration, academic/creative lab work, and community engagement.

My new book project, Weathering, focuses on the ecological significance of literature in the era of global climate change.
