We invite proposals for contributions to an edited volume on comparative ecocritical studies of Latin American writing, film and visual art, and performance that address the topic of ecological violence.

In his much-remarked 1992 review of Abdulrahman Munif’s Cities of Salt, novelist Amitav Ghosh asks: “why, when there is so much to write about, has [the oil] encounter proved so imaginatively sterile?” Twenty-five years on, this question continues to animate discussions around petro-fiction—so much so that Ghosh would return to this central query at the outset of his recent lectures on climate change, albeit in a slightly broader context.
