Ecocriticism plays a significant role in shaping environmental consciousness. Representations of nature’s agency become central to many studies conducted in literature, culture studies, philosophy, history, sociology or political science. This conference aims to explore the relationship between the physical environment and text in its broader meaning as well as analyse the social concerns raised by environmental crisis.

Conference panels will be related, but not limited, to:

  • Pastoral and wilderness
  • Animal studies
  • Cultural and literary ecology
  • Ecolinguistics
  • Ecosophy
  • Ethnobiology
  • Ecofeminism
  • Posthumanism
  • Environmental arts

We invite proposals from various disciplines including political sciences, history, philosophy, sociology, anthropology, literature, linguistics, etc.

The language of the conference is English.
