Abstract [en]

Our ideas and experiences of nature have become entangled with digital media in interesting and sometimes unexpected ways over the last few decades. Using Google Street View’s digital, screen-based mediation of Grand Canyon as a starting point, I will discuss where the tools, methods, and research agendas of the digital humanities and the environmental humanities meet. Both of these interdisciplinary fields are in rapid growth and are often invoked in discussions about the relevance and future of the humanities. What can we find of value where the two fields meet?
