Environment Across Boundaries (ENVX) is managed by the Environmental Studies (ENVS) Program at Lewis & Clark College. ENVX primarily features the work of ENVS undergraduate majors, who contribute, and curate/edit, scholarly content. You can readily view bios and related content for all ENVX editors and contributors. Oversight for ENVX is provided by contributing faculty to the ENVS Program.
The ENVX site is registered with the U.S. ISSN Center at the Library of Congress (ISSN #2476-1613).
Launched via a grant from PressForward, a WordPress digital curation plugin developed by the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University, and integrating other innovative technical features including a custom editorial workflow, ENVX features a set of portals to showcase the following work, much of it produced by our students on their sites on the DS (digital scholarship) multisite at Lewis & Clark:
- ENVS student posts. Students do posts on individual and group sites as a part of course assignments, research projects, internships, and other scholarly work. Posts often demonstrate the process of scholarship, which can be exciting—and sometimes messy.
- ENVS student projects. ENVS students do a number of research projects in courses, independent study contracts, and overseas programs. Projects evidence the interdisciplinary approach our students take, and include both process (e.g., routine posts) and outcomes (e.g., reports, posters, and other products).
- ENVS student sites. All ENVS majors and minors author a scholarly site from their second to fourth year at Lewis & Clark. Here you’ll see their related posts and projects.
- ENVS student publications. A forthcoming portal will feature publications by our students, primarily (but not exclusively) student senior theses.
- Global perspectives. This portal features our students’ work abroad, including posts on Lewis & Clark Around the World, a site featuring all Lewis & Clark students participating in Overseas and Off-Campus programs. The portal will also feature curated global content by our ENVX editors.
- Got green questions? A forthcoming portal will feature careful answers by ENVS students on common environmental questions. We hope to go deeper than simply providing information, offering scholarly perspectives to help advance popular conversations.
- Living and learning. This portal features posts by first-year students living in the Environmental Action Living-Learning Community and upper-division ENVS majors at Lewis & Clark, who collaborated spring 2016 via a group blog site.
- Symposium. This portal features posts on the Environmental Affairs Symposium. More info on symposium details can be found on the Lewis & Clark College’s symposium website.
