Language Society and the Environment (Submission Dedaline Extended)

The “Language-Society-Environment Nexus” is a prominent cross-disciplinary field of research that has been commonly addressed by the scientific community. Be it a newspaper article, a video, a classroom activity, a political debate, a social network page, creative writing, or a textbook course, we think that environmental studies have been striving to maintain the protection of nature in all its interconnectivity, including all beings, humans and animals. Today, environmental studies are a magnet that connects ecology, society, and language. For example, problems like climate change, global warming, pollution, ...

Representing a (Post)Pandemic World (1722-2022)

Special Issue of University of Toronto Quarterly (Fall 2024)

Representing a (Post) Pandemic World (1722-2022)

This special issue of the University of Toronto Quarterly asks: What is the role of art in a (post)pandemic world? How do representations of a virus/pandemic bear witness to, diagnose, and remediate the (post)pandemic world? How do we define (post)pandemic writing and the arts throughout their long histories?

Answering these questions is difficult because, as Elizabeth Outka argues, a pandemic is a “miasma” with “spectral realities”; it is “an unseen, corrupting, ...

Animated Wor(l)ds: Language and Relationality for Multispecies Kinship

CALL FOR BOOK CHAPTERS

Editors: Eva Spiegelhofer, Elizabeth Tavella

Download PDF on website: https://languageandrelationalitycfp.wordpress.com/

For this volume, we invite contributions that seek to cultivate multispecies kinship by encouraging alternative ways of relating to, thinking about, and entering into conversation with the animate world. Inspired by the etymological ties to the land of the verb cultivate, this work aims at digging deep down along the epistemic roots of anthroparchy (Cudworth). The casting of the “Human” as dominant species is largely responsible for our failure to connect with ...

To help restore a culture of inspiration and reverence towards Earth’s oceans we are looking for masterfully woven stories of 1000 to 3000 words from a range of perspectives—from marine life researchers to conservationists, free divers to writers with a deep connection to the sea, and more—who can reveal secrets of the oceans and their inhabitants, or have formed a unique bond with an ocean ...

Comparing Rivers: Aquacritical Perspectives across History and Literature

Special Issue Proposal: Comparing Rivers: Aquacritical Perspectives across History and Literature

Editors: Anna Barcz (PI of Aquacritical Vistula), Monika Gromala & Paulina Waclawik (Team Members of Aquacritical Vistula)

CALL – rationale: Rivers’ symbolical functions are deeply embedded in global traditions, giving us an insight into their cultural value. However, the long history of rivers’ hydromorphological and hydraulic transformation, as well as their anthropogenic pollution, has not been reflected in the context of their abundant national and supranational literatures and other texts of identity cultures. This call addresses ...
