Nordic Network for Interdisciplinary Environmental Studies
The Nordic Network for Interdisciplinary Environmental Studies is a research network for environmentally oriented studies based primarily in the humanities.
The network consists of researchers whose work addresses environmental questions from numerous disciplinary angles; the fields of history, literature, ethnology, linguistics, landscape architecture and cultural studies are represented among the 50+ researchers now affiliated with NIES. Whil the network is strongly anchored in the Nordic countries, institutional affiliation in the Nordic region is not a prerequisite to membership. The network's spheres of interest, broadly speaking, include focuses on enviornmental integrity, stability and sustainability as illumined at the intersection of culture and nature.
