Wormsloe Institute for Environmental History

Logo for Wormsloe Institute for Environmental History
The Wormsloe Institute seeks to examine the interwoven layers of ecology, cultural history, and historical land use practices through the lens of environmental history. Merging anthropological, historical and ecological studies of the progression of land use enriches both data collection and analysis, and results in the most comprehensive representation of time and place. The emerging paradigm of environmental history relies on innovative and interdisciplinary scholarship to investigate the link between critical social transitions and ecological responses and it supports the application of historical insights to conservation.
