One Green Field: walking, landscape, and ecocriticism

One Green Field: walking, landscape, and ecocriticism, Call for Papers for Critical Survey, Autumn 2016 (deadline for abstracts 30 November 2015).

Walking is prominent in recent creative non-fiction in the UK and Ireland. It is hypothesised that this has happened because wayfaring offers unique opportunities for our times. Encounters on foot allow us to observe endangered non-human nature and to reassess undervalued landscapes or environments. If this is true, we should see less walking in pre-modern literature, except in the cases where mystics, misfits, ...

Perma/Culture: Imagining Alternatives in an Age of Crisis

We are seeking proposals for an interdisciplinary anthology, tentatively titled “Perma/Culture: Imagining Alternatives in an Age of Crisis,” that will treat cultural production and practices related to “alternatives”—both critical and creative, descriptive and imaginative—that challenge the unjust and unsustainable systems that dominate at present.

Affective Ecocriticism

Although ecocritics have long tried to articulate complex emotional relationships to various environments, ecocritical scholarship has much to gain from the rich body of work on affect and emotion circulating within social and cultural theory, geography, psychology, philosophy, queer theory, feminist theory, and neuroscience, among other disciplines. The “affective turn” and concurrent trend toward new materialisms signal an opportune moment to conjoin affect theory and ecocriticism more deliberately. Concepts like Yi-Fu Tuan’s “topophilia,” Lawrence Buell’s “ecoglobalist affects,” and Ursula Heise’s “eco-cosmopolitanism” have helped ...

Since the end of last century our Planet Heart has become the object of an attention aimed at awakening environmental awareness. “Being” means today “being in a place” and the word ‘place’, as opposed to the more abstract ‘space’, has become an essential concept to rethink our way to inhabit the Planet. In this sense, Yi-Fu Tuan affirms that places ...
