Essays are solicited for a special issue of EJES: European Journal of English Studies on "Dislocations and Ecologies" Guest editors: Alexa Weik and Christoph Irmscher.
This issue of EJES addresses the dislocation of bodies (human and non-human), concepts, cultures, and goods across borders of various kinds not just in relation to notions of mobility, but with special attention to their interaction with their surrounding environments.
Contributions are invited from scholars working in all fields of Anglophone literature, language, media and culture that engage with environmental approaches to dislocation, migration, and border crossings of all kinds. Invited topics include, but are by no means restricted to, the following:
· ecocriticism and the cultural discourses of dislocation
· travelogues and their relationship to particular environments
· tourism and ecology
· physical travel and bodily knowledge
· imaginary travel and imagined landscapes
· postcolonialism and ecology
· cosmopolitanism and ecology
· international and transnational environmental justice
· migrant workers, labour and the environment
· travelling wastes, externalisation of environmental hazards
· species invasion and endangered environments
· environmental devastation and forced dislocation
Detailed proposals (500-1,000 words) for articles of c. 5-6,000 words, as well as all inquiries regarding this issue, should be sent to both guest editors:
- Alexa Weik
- Christoph Irmscher .
The deadline for proposals is 31 October 2010, with delivery of completed essays by 31 March 2011. The issue will appear in 2012.
