ISLE: Interdisciplinary Studies in Literature and Environment (ISLE) is the peer-reviewed, international, and transdisciplinary journal of the Association for the Study of Literature and Environment (ASLE), published quarterly by Oxford University Press (OUP).

Celebrating the rich confluence of environmental humanities, ecocriticism, and environmental justice, ISLE welcomes submissions from authors creatively engaging these fields from a broad range of disciplines, geographies, and perspectives. ISLE invites scholarly articles and creative writing that interpret the environment in complex, imaginative, and generative ways. As the journal’s work takes place in the material context of intertwined ecological, economic, and social justice crises, ISLE adopts Elizabeth Ammon’s call to find the “brave new words” that will help us understand and engage this moment and imagine and work and move toward alternate futures.
