Environmental images and representations have proliferated in recent years in media and pop cultural texts due to the widespread recognition of their powerful role in informing audiences about urgent ecological issues. Rust, Monani, and Cubitt, for instance, acknowledge “that popular cultural artifacts are at least as significant mediators of the human-environmental relationship and its attendant anxieties and joys as are literature ...
Scholars periodize Emily Dickinson’s poetry in several ways: of the American nineteenth century; as post-Puritan, post-Romantic, or pre-Modernist; of a secessionist moment. But how, we ask, does her life and work partake in what scholars today call the Anthropocene? Though the Anthropocene—the geological age we share with Dickinson—is a disputed term with varying meanings, it is most crucially recognized as a period in which human industry and activity has irreparably altered the global climate. Heralding the twilight of humanity, scholars across disciplines are ...
Environment and Religion in Feminist-Womanist, Queer, and Indigenous Perspectives

What distinguishes this series in particular is that it focuses on ecofeminism ...

Composing Climate Change: Atmosphere, Affect, Attention
GUEST EDITOR: Joshua Trey Barnett (email@example.com)
How to write of that which escapes linguistic capture? How to form into words and images precisely what slips the shackles of representational thought? How to describe what cannot, strictly speaking, be perceived? How to change climates in and through the activity of composition? How to compose climate change?
In some significant sense, such questions have become perennial. Of climate change, writers routinely ask and ...
Call for Proposals: Approaching Extinction, Contesting Extinction
The Environmental Humanities Research Cluster at Miami University (Ohio) invites chapter proposals for presentation at a symposium March 3rd and 4th, 2020, and inclusion in an edited volume.
The extinction of the living systems upon which human survival depends is an urgent problem currently lacking adequate social and political response. Recent studies indicate that a mass species extinction is well underway on our planet. Wildlife populations have decreased by 60% in the last few decades and 70% of ...
From the forests of the tales of the Brothers’ Grimm to Enid Blyton’s The Faraway Tree, from Piglet’s house in Winnie the Pooh to the treehouse in Andy Griffith and Terry Denton’s popular 13 Story Treehouse series, trees have been enduring features of stories for children. Trees act as gateways to other worlds, as liminal spaces, as markers of permanence and change, and as metonyms of childhood itself. The joy of ‘climbing a tree’ is a familiar trope of childhood. Plants more generally ...
