Arts & Humanities

Responding to social and cultural aspects of climate change requires integration of arts, humanities and science to enhance trans-disciplinary innovation and competitiveness of research proposals. Arizona Environment embraces a more sustainable future, with multiple disciplines working together - including fine arts, design, history, literature, philosophy and cultural studies.

UArizona faculty explore the natural world and its connections to humanity through literature, creative writing, art history, and the visual and performing arts with strong connections to the community. The arts and humanities provide the opportunity to approach solutions to environmental challenges through a holistic, social justice lens that can inspire decision-makers, practitioners and researchers to develop resilient solutions for a more sustainable future. The paintbrush and pen can be mightier than PowerPoint when it comes to explaining, on a human scale, our environment and the urgency of global climate change!
