Peter Lang New Series on Latin American Environmental Humanities

Deadline: December 2019
Contact: Gisela Heffes and Lisa Blackmore

Latin American Environmental Humanities is a peer-reviewed book series that will focus on
rigorous works by the most innovative scholars working on Latin America. It will publish scholarly
contributions to the growing field of environmental humanities with the aim of establishing critical
conversations about nature and culture within the framework of the latest environmental debates and
their historical antecedents and contexts. The series will include a wide range of disciplines, such as
literary studies, history, film, visual arts, and philosophy, that probe key issues in the global
discussions of ecocriticism, environmental history, posthumanism, waste studies, indigenous
ecologies and epistemologies, animal studies, landscape studies, natural disaster studies, and blue
humanities. We are particularly interested in theoretically and inter- and trans-disciplinary works.
Ultimately, the goal of Latin American Environmental Humanities is to bring together new
perspectives and advance scholarship with manuscripts that will focus on specifically cutting-edge
Latin American issues that lie at the intersections of aesthetics, cultural, visual and literary studies,
history, philosophy and environmental studies.

We invite submissions of both monographs and edited collections that will contribute to the growing
discussions in Latin American cultural studies as well as innovate by bringing new perspectives on
underrepresented sources, or sources that could be revisited under a new ecological light. By “Latin
America”, we include both Brazil and the Spanish-speaking Caribbean. Written in English, the titles
in this series will include both single- and multi-authored works. The series will consider high quality
translations into English, but will not provide translation funding.

Please send submissions to co-editors Gisela Heffes (  and Lisa Blackmore (
