Kneitz Agnes 

基本情况
Agnes Kneitz joined the department of world history at Renmin University of China to bother BA and MA students with an 
omnipresent environmental history in autumn 2013. The same summer, Dr. Kneitz had finished a PhD dissertation on ideas 
of environmental justice represented in 19th century social novels as a member of the RCC doctoral program Environment 
and Society at LMU Munich. In Beijing, she began to publish on the topic in journals and edited volumes with a soft spot
 for interdisciplinary work, such as ISLE, Environmental Humanities, and Ecozon@. In a bridging position between Germany 
and China, she has edited an RCC special issue for Global Environments, and assists in facilitating joint events between 
her alma mater and the Center for Ecological History at RUC, for example. In her new research project she revisits the 
colonial history of Qingdao and its beautiful landscape from an environmental historian’s perspective. Eventually, this
 is supposed to serve as a strategic location to embark on a journey  towards global ecological topics.
