The Critical Environments Research Group (CERG), is an interdisciplinary cohort of scholars all working in the environmental humanities at the University of Manitoba, with affiliated faculty at the University of Winnipeg. CERG aims to foster a unique venue for collaboration and scholarly support around the environmental humanities in western Canada. Our mandate is to promote increased research and teaching collaborations that bring together critical scholarly perspectives on environmental sustainability, equity, and justice. Scholars involved with CERG share the conviction that the environment cannot be understood as a stand alone category; instead our scholarship is oriented around the notion that the environment should be analysed as a set of relations, encompassing economic, social, political, cultural, legal, and health frames as well. We all work around the common theme of human-environment relations but bring different disciplinary and analytical backgrounds to the conversation.
