This issue is inspired by Silent Spring: Chemical, Biological and Technological Visions of the Post-1945 Environment, a collaborative workshop series taking place at Birkbeck School of Arts and the Centre for Modern Studies at York University.* Rachel Carsons classic polemic Silent Spring celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2012: it still stands as one of the most influential texts on the damage caused to the natural environment by chemicals and nuclear fallout in the twentieth century. In line with the workshop series, this issue takes the anniversary of Carsons text as a starting point for exploring how biological, chemical and technological changes to the environment have shaped cultural explorations of nature and landscape across the humanities.
We welcome both long (5000-8000 words) and short (under 5000 words) articles. We also encourage conference and event reports, blog posts, book, film and exhibition reviews, podcasts and artwork. We welcome submissions from doctoral students, early career researchers, established academics and independent practioners, working in all disciplines.
Send submissions by 31 July 2013 to the editors via firstname.lastname@example.org or through the Dandelion website. Complete instructions for submissions can be found at http://dandelionjournal.org/
All referencing and style is required in full MHRA format as a condition of publication. Submitted articles should be academically rigorous and ready for publication.
*To register for the next workshop, set to take place on 7 June at Birkbeck, email email@example.com or visit www.silentspringboard.or
