Deadline for application extended to April 5, 2013. UNH Summer Institute: Ecology and Ethnicity. The University of New Hampshire's Sustainability Institute is starting a new faculty summer seminar, designed to give scholars in the humanities some time and space to produce work that can contribute to the rapidly growing, interdisciplinary field of sustainability research. This July we offer a week on "Ecology and Ethnicity," led by anthropologist Darren Ranco (Penobscot, University of Maine); architectural historian Angel David Nieves (Hamilton College); and literary historian Siobhan Senier (UNH). Learn more about the institute at http://www.sustainableunh.unh.edu/summerseminar; contact Siobhan Senier (email@example.com) with any questions; and consider joining us for a week in New Hampshire, an especially lovely place to be in July!
Write about the Environment for Magazines

The interactive course is geared to meet writers where they’re at - whether you’re an aspiring writer, or an established pro wanting to break into more “green” markets (environment, science, outdoor travel) or make more money writing. The class includes weekly assignments with instructor feedback plus invaluable resources including Q&As from editors at magazines like Sierra, Audubon, Orion, Mother Jones, Smithsonian and more.
Deadline to register is one week before class start date. The class is run through email, via a Yahoogroup, and includes weekly assignments and resources.
