When we began planning in 2007 for the launch of an electronic journal, we considered several names. Many were brilliant, but too long to fit on a single page. Others might have limited our readership considerably, but were near and dear to a couple of hearts. As is often a good idea, we finally returned to our origins and remembered a phrase, “Minding Nature,” that was hovering in the conversations at the Center’s founding.
Recently, in the CHN archives, I came across the conference agenda pictured here. In an important sense, it was at the New School for Social Research in 2003, where Strachan Donnelley many years before had earned his Ph.D., that Minding Nature was born. Nineteen issues and counting.
