The Association for the Study of Literature and Environment (UK and Ireland) was founded in 1998. Our aim is to represent and support scholars and writers, in the Atlantic archipelago and beyond, interested in the environment and its expression in the cultural imagination. We provide a forum for ‘environmental criticism’ and ‘ecocriticism’, that is, the study of the intricate relationships between human and nonhuman environments, broadly construed. We are motivated by a commitment to ecologically sound practices and politics, but, above all, we seek to foster a spirit of open dialogue and intellectual curiosity about how ‘nature’ and ‘environment’ exist in our discursive lives.
