Events and Places

In this assignment, students will produce a short text with supporting multimedia and metadata on a significant place or event related to the Anthropocene, suitable for publication on the Environment & Society Portal, a nonprofit education, research, and outreach project by the Rachel Carson Center for Environment & Society that makes digital multimedia and interpretive materials in environmental humanities freely and openly accessible. The entries created as part of this course will be posted here on the course website, and selected submissions may be published (with the student’s permission) on the Environment & Society Portal under a Creative Commons license, with full credits to the authors. The Portal team will select a subset of submissions for publication, and reserves the right to edit approved entries.
