Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society

The Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society (RCC) is an international, interdisciplinary center for research and education in the environmental humanities and social sciences. A nonprofit institution, the RCC was founded in 2009 as a joint initiative of Munich's Ludwig-Maximilians-Universit├Ąt and the Deutsches Museum, with the generous support of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.

The institute's namesake is the American biologist, nature writer, and environmentalist Rachel Carson, whose writing raised awareness worldwide about threats to the environment and human health. While based in Munich, Germany, staff and fellows come from all over the world, and the official working language is English.

The RCC mission is to advance research and discussion concerning the interrelationship between humans and nature, contributing to public and scholarly debates about past transformations and future challenges in environment and society, and harnessing the interpretative power of the humanities (and social sciences) to contextualize technologies, economies, and policies.
