About KTH Royal Institute of Technology
The KTH Environmental Humanities Lab is a new initiative born within the Department of the History of Science, Technology and the Environment at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology. Its main aim is fostering research, training, and outreaching activities in the Environmental Humanities field.
The environmental humanities is currently one of the most dynamic fields in the human sciences. Their dynamism and energy are derived from the increasing demand on human and social knowledge to meet global challenges. The environmental humanities are characterized by a hybrid nature, combining skills, methods, and theories from several humanities disciplines – historical, aesthetic, visual, anthropological, etc. – with problems and issues of high relevance for society and informed by science and technology. The work in the EHL follows organically from previous work conducted in the Division on environment, energy, media, and technologies.
Their role in Entitle:
The EHL division led by Dr. Marco Armiero's offers a great opportunity to reinforce the humanities within ENTITLE. As associate partner EHL hosts ENTITLE students who want to reinforce their training in any field related to the environmental humanities, organizes workshops and conferences, contributes to Entitle courses and will co-organize together with the Universidade de Coimbra the Entitle Final Conference.
