Call for Contributions: Eco-Fictions – Emergent Discourses on Nature & Environment in Postcolonial Literatures. Abstract deadline now passed.

Instead of looking at the past by viewing the remains of ancient settlements or by inspecting inscriptions left in caves by primitive humans, future generations will gather information about current times by the imprint that neoliberal capitalism is leaving on everything. Plastic bottles, cigarette butts, electronic components and even medical waste will provide them with a portrait of what we have become. Being acutely aware of this, authors are already documenting the state of emergency that society has reached and which is symbolised by the ever-growing ecological consciousness that climate change and other irreversible phenomena have created in our daily lives. We call for papers that explore how authors illustrate this conundrum in their works. Further details HERE
