Insurgent Infrastructures

Insurgent Infrastructures Special Issue Critique: Studies in Contemporary Fiction

Whether it is pipeline protests, collapsed global supply chains, or fights for equitable housing, the invisible infrastructures that underpin our lives have gained an increasing vitality and presence as both bogeyman and rainmakers. More than just an increased visibility of the physical and ethereal infrastructures that compose our world, then, infrastructure itself, for all intents and purposes, has critically been weaponized over the past decade. From the insidious harvesting of digital data to the Polish/Belarusian border, ...

FEMINIST ECOLOGICAL CITIZENSHIP AND THE POLITICS OF CARE

Call for papers for the JoE’s fourth issue Special Issue

FEMINIST ECOLOGICAL CITIZENSHIP AND THE POLITICS OF CARE

At the “Women and Environment Conference” at UC Berkeley in 1974, convened by Sandra Marburg and Lisa Watson, the connection between women and environment was officially registered for the first time. The early ecofeminists like Vera Norwood find the association of women with nature and the efforts of the women in preserving the environment. They observe that, promoting its own history, and recognising the contribution of women in ...

Journal of Ecohumanism General Call

Journal of Ecohumanism invites contributors to submit their articles. Submission Deadline: throughout a year

Since Environmental Humanities ample research has looked at variable aspects of ecological citizenship, we have to focus on globalization’s temporality in the rise of Citizen Humanities. In this sense, we are in the midst ...

Environmental Humanities in Latin America: Encounters between Art, Literature and Science

For this, we invite authors to explore experimental, interdisciplinary, ecocritical, posthuman methodologies as well as materials that, crossing the borders between art and science, produce encounters between the humanities and other disciplines in situated and corporeal reflections with particular ...

The central text in this issue ...

MLA Options for Teaching Series: Science Writing

As fans of the genre can attest, popular science writing belies the notion of “science” and “literature” as separate domains. Bestselling science writers borrow freely from the techniques of fiction writers to craft compelling narratives, memorable examples, and evocative representations of technical information. Scholars have long recognized the literariness of science writing: as pioneering work by Gillian Beer, George Levine, Devin Griffiths, Donna Haraway, and others attests, it is difficult to overestimate the historical traffic between science and literature. Since the early modern ...
