The Plant Humanities Lab, which launched in beta type on March 9, 2021, is an revolutionary digital area that supports the interdisciplinary examine of plants from the perspectives of the arts, sciences, and humanities, as a way to explore their extraordinary significance to human culture. It was developed by Dumbarton Oaks and JSTOR Labs within the context of the Plant Humanities Initiative, with assist from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The emerging, interdisciplinary area of plant humanities seeks to highlight the enduring significance of plants to human cultures. In dialogue with science, it advances the understanding of plant-human relationships by means of the methods and perspectives of humanities scholarship, to help deal with pressing human and environmental challenges in the Anthropocene. In September 2018 Dumbarton Oaks obtained a three-yr grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, with a sister grant to JSTOR Labs, to advance Plant Humanities. This new, interdisciplinary subject explores and communicates the unparalleled significance of plants to human tradition.
