In an unprecedented international tribute, a special one-day workshop has been held in Munich to honour the work and influence of South African environmental historian Jane Carruthers, President of the International Consortium of Environmental History Organisations (ICEHO). The event was organized by the Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society (RCC) at Ludwig Maximilian University (LMU), the largest Center for Advanced Study in the field of the Environmental Humanities. Jane Carruthers has been the Chair of the Academic Board of the Carson Center since its founding in 2009 and she was instrumental, according to RCC director Christof Mauch, in guiding the Carson Center in a spirit of transnational collaboration and interdisciplinary exploration.
