Very few attempts have been made so far to decolonize the expanse of Blue Humanities yet it stands as an ensemble of creative renewals. With Ian Buchanan’s ‘Must we eat Fish’ we get to encounter the topography of such renewals. With his essay Buchanan effects a relation between ‘the foundational non-humanity of our being’ and oceans while Probyn, whose standpoint he critiques, seeks a persistence of exploitative humanist relationality with the same in the guise of “amplifying the level of felt relatedness to ...

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, ...
