The past decade has seen the emergence and rapid growth of a new field of inquiry: the Environmental Humanities (EH). From the scholarly ‘turns’ of the humanities in the 1990s and 2000s and the increasing demand on science and scholarship to face global challenges, a broad gathering of humanities disciplines emerged and fostered this field.

Now encompassing a number of highly visible academic journals, book series from acclaimed academic publishers, and broader outreach opportunities, environmental humanities have reached a critical moment when it is relevant to convene for a larger meeting.

The primary purpose of STREAMS is to invite diverse communities of EH practitioners to come together to share work, advance ideas, and craft new imaginaries that can shape present and future transformations. These aims are especially important in the current moment when it seems impossible to imagine or pursue alternatives to the multiple socio-ecological crises taking place around the world.
