ASLE Community Grants build connections between the environmental humanities and place-based nonprofit environmental organizations working outside the academy. Projects will foreground the intersection between local efforts to address issues of environmental degradation and injustice and the role of representation and rhetoric. We are especially interested in projects enabling ASLE to connect with the environmental struggles of the biennial conference locale. Funds may be used to cover the costs of public presentations or exhibitions (permanent or temporary), informational materials, literary and artistic productions, or interactive digital projects.
Accepted proposals will be funded up to a maximum of $5,000 each.
Applications for the final year in our three year pilot for these grants are now being accepted, the deadline is July 1, 2016.
