The series Nature, Culture and Literature is dedicated to publications approaching literature and other forms of text-based communication from an ecological standpoint. It provides a platform for the practice of ecocriticism in the broadest sense, understood as an issue-driven field of cultural enquiry comprising critical textual analysis and theorising on human/nature relations.
The series publishes single-author monographs and thematically focused collections of essays, on literature across languages, cultures and periods, and on other forms of writing. It is open to scholars working in green media studies, environmental history, philosophy, social and cultural theory, and linguistics, as well as national literatures and comparative literature.
Individual volumes focus on a specific area of research, these can include:
・Examining the work of a single author or the characteristics of the environmental imagination in a particular culture.
・Mapping one of the themes central to popular understandings of nature and explore their creative reconfiguration (e.g. nature and national/regional identity, human/ animal relations, or climate change).
・Developing and illustrating a particular theoretical approach (for instance in ecolinguistics, energy humanities, or econarratology / ecopoetics).
All volumes are peer reviewed.
Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals to the publisher at BRILL, Christa Stevens.
