ASLE Subvention Grants support innovative projects in ecocriticism and the environmental humanities. We are especially interested in projects of a scholarly and/or creative nature that engage with new media, aim at fostering intercultural or interdisciplinary exchange, or seek to bring insights from the environmental humanities to a non-academic public. Projects such as art installations, documentary film projects, digital humanities web projects as well as book or article publication are eligible, and funds may be used to cover costs such as publication and dissemination, color reproductions, translation, or web/internet expenses. Accepted proposals will be funded up to a maximum of $1,000 each.
The Subvention Grants will now share a funding pool with our Translation Grants, and won’t be offered in biennial conference years. This year, because of postponement of our biennial in-person conference, we are awarding grants in 2021.
Submissions are currently open for 2021 Subvention Grants, the deadline for application is June 1, 2021. Submission instructions are below.
