This website is a growing resource for anyone interested in teaching climate change in the humanities and social sciences, offering resources and reading lists that can be integrated into a college course syllabus. The resources should be useful for humanities and literature instructors who are interested in developing syllabi, or adding climate change/climate justice units to their courses, as well as for instructors in the sciences and social sciences who might want to include discussion of literary texts into their classes, and team-taught courses where instructors might be looking for texts that can bring their different areas of expertise together.

Reading lists are organized by title and by theme. Much of the content overlaps with studies in race, gender, class, sexuality, postcolonialism, poetics, media studies, journalism, sound studies, and other interdisciplinary fields. Additional resources are provided to connect instructors to climate action, related projects, and example syllabi and course websites.

The project was started in 2018 by students and professors in the Ecocriticism Public Working Group from the Graduate Center, CUNY, and the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development at New York University. The project has been sponsored by the Center for the Humanities and the GC Doctoral Students Council.
