The Australian National University has the best concentration of expertise in interdisciplinary environmental studies in Australia and one of the best in the world. The ANU Colleges of Arts and Social Sciences, Asia and the Pacific, Law, and Medicine, Biology and the Environment, and the ANU Climate Change Institute have many of the nation’s leading scholars in environmental history, politics and philosophy, the study of landscape change and the ecological humanities.

The establishment of a Centre for Environmental History at ANU in late 2009 consolidated existing pioneering initiatives over the past decade and will enable the university to build further on its intellectual leadership in this field. The Centre embraces research and teaching in environmental history, history of science and public history from anywhere in the world, but focuses particularly on Australian experience and perspectives.
