About this series
This series introduces the research undertaken at, or in association with, the Research Institute for Humanity and Nature. Located in Kyoto, Japan, RIHN is a national institute conducting fixed-term, multidisciplinary and international research projects on pressing areas of environmental concern. RIHN seeks to transcend the common divisions between the humanities and the social and natural sciences, and to develop synthetic and transformative description of humanity in the midst of a dynamic, changeable nature. The works published here will reflect the full breadth of RIHN scholarship in this transdisciplinary field of global environmental studies.
