March 10, 2022

On January 26, 2022, three grantees from the Environmental Humanities Grant Program shared their work in an online public program. We are excited to share a recording of this program on our new YouTube channel!

Grace Cajski of Yale College presented “Talking Story: How Hawaii’s Modern Aquaculturists Discovered a Solution to the Future in the Past,” an oral history and journalism project that aims to capture and preserve the knowledge of Hawaiian aquaculturists who are harnessing ancient fishponds to restore the islands’ ecological balance. 

Meredith Miller and MJ Millington of the Beinecke Library shared “Dremaing Animals,” a series of prints exploring the relationship between animals and humans.

Laura Pappalardo of Yale School of Architecture shared  “Mapping Grounds for Reparations in the Jaraguá Indigenous land, São Paulo, Brazil,” a collection of instruments, visual materials and documents that contribute to Guarani initiatives to increase public awareness about Guarani land rights and Atlantic Forest preservation in the Jaraguá Indigenous Land, in São Paulo, Brazil.

The Yale Environmental Humanities Grant Program supports public humanities projects by members of the Yale community,  including undergraduate and graduate students, staff, and faculty. Projects include artistic endeavors, educational programming, and accessible media, representing diverse disciplinary fields and engaging with geographies from New Haven to Brazil to Eastern Europe. Members of the Yale community are currently invited to submit proposals for the next round of environmental humanities grants. Grant proposals are due February 13.
