Author Guidelines

The 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, the 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.
