According to nature

In which political and social theories or artistic and cultural expressions has nature represented a central issue? When has nature played a key role, how has this role been characterized? Active or passive? Positive or negative? Utopian or dystopian? Has nature been seen as a submissive instrument or as an uncontrolled force? Is it a friend or an enemy?

 «Suite française» invites everyone to reflect on this very current topic mainly through a historical perspective. As usual, the call is focused on the French-speaking domain, but at the same time it is open to comparison with other cultures.

The proposals, not exceeding 2.000 characters, accompanied by a temporary title and a brief biographical note, have be sent to redazione@suitefrancaise.it  not later than December 31, 2020.
The selection will be announced by January 31, 2021.
The definitive papers, between 20.000 and 50.000 characters long, with an introductive abstract and five keywords, will be drafted in accordance with the editorial rules of the journal. They must arrive by May 31, 2021, in time for the double anonimous peer review. The issue is scheduled for the autumn: Suite française 4/2021.
