2021-06-05

Journal of EcohumanismJournal of Ecohumanism invites contributors to the inaugural issue.
Submission Deadline: 30 September 2021

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.
