Visiting Scholars

CEH welcomes visiting Environmental Humanities scholars on all academic levels from around the globe to come and stay with us, be it a few weeks or a few months. Hosting visiting scholars has proven to be mutually beneficial as these scholars bring with them refreshing perspectives that challenge and sharpen us based here at AU. Important to this hosting arrangement is the commitment CEH holds to academic pursuit; we see scholarly work as deeply interwoven with the person, and we seek to honour this dimension by providing intellectual exchange that is positive and convivial.

CEH hosts scholars and PhD students from other institutions for short and long-term visits. Due to our current budget, we cannot provide financial support for visitors, but we are happy to provide a lively intellectual environment, advice about housing, desk/internet access, etc. We strongly encourage all visitors to share their work with the CEH community by giving a talk at one of our seminars during their stay. The details of all visits must be discussed on an individual basis. For more information, please email ceh@cas.au.dk
