The Cape Comorin Publisher’s Environmental Humanities Series seeks to engage with contemporary environmental challenges through the `various lenses of the humanities. The aim is to explore the disciplines of ecocriticism into comparative literature (American, European, Indian Literature (19th-21st c.), ecofeminism, ecopoetics, eco-/bio-art, ecopsychology, ecoaesthetics, ecomaterialism, environmental communication, environmental history, ecophenomenology, energy and natural sources, petrocultures etc.
The series is premised on the notion that the arts, humanities, and social sciences, integrated with the natural sciences. The environmental humanities are a multidimensional discipline encompassing such fields as anthropology, history, literature, theory, media studies, philosophy, psychology, religion, sociology, women’s and gender studies etc. Thus, we are eager to receive book proposals that explicitly cross traditional disciplinary boundaries, bringing the full force of multiple perspectives to illuminate variable environmental topics. We favor manuscripts aimed at an international readership and written in a lively and accessible style. Our authors include scholars and students from across the span of environmental studies disciplines.

The Brontës and the Idea of Influence
A thematic dossier in the “Writers, writings” section of LISA e-journal
In March 2007, Stevie Davies, Patricia Duncker and Michele Roberts gathered around Patsy Stoneman at Haworth in Yorkshire to talk about the influence that the Brontës had had on their evolutions as authors, and more generally, about the source of inspiration that the most famous family of writers in England could represent. Patsy Stoneman had already tackled the topic by publishing a book entitled The Brontë Influence in 2004 with the help of Charmian Knight. The issue of LISA e-journal “Re-Writing Jane Eyre: Jane Eyre, Past and Present” is further evidence of Charlotte Brontë’s influence on the writers of the following decades or centuries. So far, these studies have been quite limited and this field of research, “the Brontë influence”, offers a wide range of possible developments.
Moreover, if the four authors’ poetry and novels have already been the object of numerous studies, there is much left to write about the influences which were exerted on the Brontës, whether religious, literary, philosophical or cultural. Taking account of the context of a work is often a good way of understanding the issues underlying a text: the path taken by the Brontës, their journeys, their stays abroad, the books they read, etc. could prove to be very enlightening. Besides these external factors, one could also consider the interactions between the three sisters, who wrote in the same room and who read passages from their works aloud.
A final aspect to identify and study could be the influences which are exerted within the Brontës’ works themselves. How can one account for the progress of the heroes and heroines? How is the influence that characters have on one another expressed? What role does nature play in the destiny of characters? Which other elements intervene in the novels?
This dossier devoted to the Brontës intends to analyse the works through the perspective of influence and three different fields of research can thus be considered:
– influences on the Brontës
– the idea of influence in the Brontës’ works
– the Brontë influence on the writers of the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries.
Please send your proposals (one A4 page maximum) to Dr. Élise Ouvrard firstname.lastname@example.org.
Accepted articles will be published in the thematic dossier “The Brontës and the Idea of Influence” on the website of LISA e-journal:

Submissions are continuously accepted.
Are literary scholars and critics supposed to voice their view on normative questions within their academic writings? How far should world views, political opinions and evaluations enter into the scholarly and critical work with literary texts? Is it even possible to exclude such judgements from literary studies? How and why do different traditions of literary studies treat these problems divergently?
Submissions are expected to refer to previous contributions to this controversy by Peter J. Rabinowitz and Marshall W. Gregory, which can be found at http://www.jltonline.de/index.php/articles/article/view/254/775 and at http://www.jltonline.de/index.php/articles/article/view/287/879

In this troubled and troubling period when “normal” life is suspended and depends on lockdowns whose duration can only be indeterminate in the face of an invisible and devastating evil,
At a time when everyone’s anguish is palpable, dominated by hardships and sacrifices, our civic responsibilities, our humanitarian preoccupations are all the stronger.
In this suspended time, perhaps more than ever, certain words resonate and give birth to thoughts and reflections, i.e. the sharing of ideas, ideas of solidarity, of collaborative deeds or actions, offering friendship, comfort, goodwill…
Writing has many virtues; among them, in its inclusive aims and in its fruitful modes of expression, we can mention catharsis, mobilization, commitment, empowerment, serenity, escape…
In these Mélanges, we propose to pay a complementary, different but nevertheless sincere, homage to Pr. Dr. Denis Mukwege and to support his struggle to combat violence against women and the most vulnerable, and, more broadly, war crimes, but also to aid abused victims, and, more generally, those destroyed by rape and other acts of barbarism for which denunciation and condemnation of the unacceptable, the unmentionable, the unbearable must remain permanent and sustained.
The Mélanges in homage to Pr. Dr. Denis Mukwege continues to welcome new contributions.
Your contributions may, for instance, be (this list is not exhaustive) keywords, quotations (your own or those that “inspire” you), paragraphs, “Calligrammes”, an ode, a haiku, an epigram, a limerick, a dialogue, a soliloquy, a satire, a letter, an opinion piece, a pamphlet, a plea… Drawings, sketches or photos are also possible as are short sound and/or musical excerpts, interludes, short photo montages, audio or filmed recordings (texts read, sung or played)…
Please note that we cannot cover any copyright charges. If in doubt, please contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org).

Arcadiana. Special issue: Ecofeminism
Deadlines for submissions: on a rolling basis up until autumn/winter 2022
Call for Contributions for a Special Section: Ecofeminism
Arcadiana welcomes the submission of short contributions in the field of Ecofeminism.
The key premise of ecofeminism as we understand it, is that social equality cannot be achieved without environmental equality (and vice versa). Or as Mary Mellor summarises, “[e]cofeminism brings together elements of the feminist and green movements, while at the same time offering a challenge to both. It takes from the green movement a concern about the impact of human activities on the non-human world and from feminism the view of humanity as gendered in ways that subordinate, exploit and oppress women” (Feminism & Ecology, 1997, p1). Thus, ecofeminism can be viewed as an opportunity to deconstruct societal, economic, and cultural tendencies which largely contributed to the current environmental crisis. Informed by these hypotheses, Arcadiana is looking for articles which address these issues, and hence are located at the intersection of feminism and ecocriticism.
Topics might include but are not limited to:
- ethical aspects of ecofeminism
- translating theory into action: practical manifestations of ecofeminism
- women and the environment in the global south
- ecofeminism and climate change
- queer ecofeminism
- exploration of the role of fine art in ecofeminism
- activism and ecofeminism
- the examination of patriarchal dominance in nature and society
- the exploitation of marginalised communities and nature
- challenging the current schemes of culture of domination
- the critique of ecofeminism
About the Submissions
Arcadiana is a blog about the environment in literature and culture. It is hosted by postgraduate members of the European Association for Literature, Culture and the Environment (EASLCE).
You are welcome to submit contributions of approximately 750-1000 words. The language of submissions is English. Deadline: We are accepting submissions on a rolling basis up until autumn/winter 2022. All submissions shall be sent to: email@example.com.

Journal of Ecohumanism
Submission Deadline: throughout a year
Journal of Ecohumanism aims to open up new possibilities in reconfiguring the multidimensional internship among humans and the more-than-human world by focusing on the structure, mechanics, functionalities, and representations of this internship manifested across ecohumanist and civil contexts. Since Environmental Humanities ample research has looked at variable aspects of ecological citizenship, we have to focus on globalization’s temporality in the rise of Citizen Humanities. In this sense, we are in the midst of constant transformations and evolutionary processes, contributing to the world defining, even perceiving new planetary narrations. In response, the Journal of Ecohumanism develops conversations to consider how challenging conditions shape the concept of citizenship as form, structure, identity, representation and insight, as well as how ecohumanism affects our civil experience of space and time. Moreover, Journal of Ecohumanism features original research articles, discussion papers and book reviews in a great range of topics covered by critical ecohumanism and citizenship, including but not limited to works informed by cross-cultural and transnational approaches in their intersections with literary theory, cultural studies, cultural criticism, comparative literature, media studies, social studies, religious studies, medical humanities, continental philosophy, and environmental ethics. Τhe journal welcomes research in environmental humanities, ecopoetics, ecofeminism, ecopsychology, eco-/bio-art, eco-linguistics, matters of Anthropocene or Capitalocene, symbiosis and the era of Symbiocene, citizen humanities and art, semiotics of space and place, urban ecology, smart cities, resilience and sustainability, biopolitics, bioterrorism, pandemic literature and art, posthumanism and related topics about eco-citizenship and the future of Humanities.
All the aforementioned disciplines and research fields change how we understand citizenship by interpreting and translating the complexities of the world that we live in alongside the interplays among humans and the more-than-human world. In conclusion, the Journal of Ecohumanism is open to contributions from around the globe by enriching and promoting the interdisciplinary dialogue between academics, practitioners, policymakers, and students working on different disciplines and encouraging the ecohumanist and citizen narratives in both theory and praxis.
Currently, submissions in English and French are considered. For all articles, an abstract in English is required. For submissions in French, another abstract in the original language is required. The journal follows a strict double-blind review policy embedded in our general publishing ethics and supported by rigorous academic scrutiny of papers published. We invite papers, commentaries, discussion papers and book reviews investigating the ecohumanist and civil narratives in Environmental Humanities, Citizen Humanities, Literary Theory and Cultural Criticism, enabling short research accounts, debates, study cases, book reviews in this interdisciplinary field of Humanities. The Journal seeks to explore issues beyond the “ecocentric-anthropocentric” binary and to examine the changing status of subjectivity, agency, and citizenship today through the complex relations between nature and techno-culture while encouraging a philosophical rethinking of citizenship in a more-than-human world.
Possible topics include but are not limited to:
- Ecocriticism and the Εcological Culture
