The Oslo School of Environmental Humanities Miljøsalon is organized by the Miljøhumaniora faggruppe (section) at the Department of Culture Studies and Oriental Languages (IKOS) to bring together environmentally interested people (staff, Postdocs, Researchers, PhDs, graduate students, visiting scholars) who would like to connect across disciplines, time and space.

We aim to connect across sections and disciplines at IKOS, while also being open to interested and committed people from other fields, departments and faculties. Through a series of regular gatherings, we strive to work against silos, create a community across the department, including PhDs, Postdocs, students, and staff. The Miljøsalon provides a space for PhDs, Postdocs, and visiting scholars people to present their work, to connect them with experimental teaching in the Environmental Humanities, and to further develop thinking around Environmental Humanities concepts. Gatherings take a variety of formats ranging from seminars and community building excursions to fireside chats and mushroom foraging. The Miljøsalon welcomes creative and experimental suggestions for topical foci and meeting formats.
