becoming-Feral: a bestiarum vocabulum

becoming-Feral is a creative research publication which aims to investigate the complex relationships between human/other-animals and the shifting categories of wild/feral/domestic, set within landscapes constantly being altered by global transformations of climate and capitalism.

Call for Special Issue of Interval(le)s on “The Pastoral: New Trajectories in the Anthropocene”

“Pastoralism is a species of cultural equipment that western thought has for more than two millennia been unable to do without” (Lawrence Buell, 1995).

Since its very beginning, Ecocriticism – and its so-called four “waves” – has highlighted the inextricable entanglement of the pastoral with Western perceptions, representations and conceptualizations of the environment (Buell 1995; 2005; Slovic 2010). The recent emergence and multiplication of analytical perspectives, theories, and neologisms related to this subject, including the ‘post-pastoral’ (Gifford, 1999), the ‘postmodern pastoral’ (Corey and Waldrep 2012), and the ...

Post Green: Literature, Culture, and Environment

Post Green: Literature, Culture, and Environment Edited by Murali Sivaramakrishnan and Animesh Roy

One of the central concerns of modern environmentalism in the West, especially in environmental humanities has been a greater preoccupation and a consequent move toward postmaterialist values. Literary environmentalism in the West arose out of a desire toward a posthumanist understanding of the earth, an exploration of how literature and literary criticism could be a potent tool for or against environmental change. Despite Glotfelty and Buell’s noble intentions, the lacuna inherent within ...
