Ecocriticism plays a significant role in shaping environmental consciousness. Representations of nature’s agency become central to many studies conducted in literature, culture studies, philosophy, history, sociology or political science. This conference aims to explore the relationship between the physical environment and text in its broader meaning as well as analyse the social concerns raised by environmental crisis.

Conference panels will be related, but not limited, to:

Pastoral and wilderness
Animal studies
Cultural and literary ecology
Ecolinguistics
Ecosophy
Ethnobiology
Ecofeminism
Posthumanism
Environmental arts
We invite proposals from various disciplines including political sciences, history, philosophy, sociology, anthropology, literature, linguistics, etc.

The language of the conference is English.

Paper proposals up to 250 words and a brief biographical note should be sent by 20 August, 2018 to: eco@irf-network.org. Please download paper proposal form.
