This short article traces the genesis of the Master's Degree and the connected research programs and project on the environmental humanities at Ca' Foscari university of Venice, showing how if the denomination is fairly recent, the interest for the relevant topics has a much longer interdisciplinary history, connected, among others, to environmental studies, postcolonial studies, anthropology. A key moment was the establishment of the Center for the Humanities and Social Change that since its inception in 2017 placed the relationship between the humanities and climate change and the center of its critical thinking.
