We are currently looking for submissions for Arcadiana, an upcoming blog hosted by postgraduate members of the European Association for Literature, Culture and the Environment (EASLCE).

We invite submissions on the subjects of literature, culture and the environment by postgraduate and early career researchers working in and across the disciplines of the environmental humanities who are interested in making the field accessible to a public audience. Posts can discuss topics from all periods of literary, cultural and natural history from all geographical areas but should highlight their ongoing relevance in relating them to a current moment or event. You do not need to be a member of EASLCE to submit a blog post.

address current political or cultural events, discuss the role of (historical and contemporary) literature in navigating these events, may focus on a particular site, event or cultural text in relation to current events, …

Reviews 800 – 1,000 words

of books (academic, nonfiction, fiction), films, video games, conferences, art exhibitions, book festivals, …

How to submit
Please send an email with the subject line “Pitch” to [email protected], including

a 200-word proposal summarising your post, including its topicality, and the format of your submission
a short bio including your research areas
a statement of your schedule (i.e. when you can submit the full article)
At the moment, we can only accept submissions in English, German and Greek but we hope to be able to provide editing for other European languages in the future. All submissions will undergo an editing process which includes comments, suggestions and copy-editing.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any queries you might have.

We hope that you will consider sharing your thoughts with us and enjoy your experience of the blog.
