What is CHE?
The Center for Culture, History, and Environment (CHE) and at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is part of the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies that draws together faculty, staff, graduate students, and others from a wide array of academic disciplines to investigate environmental and cultural change in the full sweep of human history.
CHE provides a place where a community of scholars from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds can share insights and explore the past and present relationships between humans and the environment.
