We are excited to announce our 2018 postgraduate conference – held this year on Orkney. This is a unique opportunity for postgraduate students and early career researchers to explore and present new work in the ecohumanities in this island environment, and to participate in the Orkney International Science Festival. Full details on submitting your proposals can be found HERE. Information on an exciting public lecture competition is available HERE.

We are keen to encourage  ASLE-UKI panels at ecocritical and mainstream conferences. If you are an ASLE-UKI member planning to attend a relevant conference and would like to convene such a panel,  please contact us at, as we may be able to offer a small bursary to support costs.
