Oecologies keeps a working bibliography of recent scholarly works focused on environmental theory, ecology, and ecocriticism in Medieval and early modern historical periods. Due to space, we have limited the bibliography to books, edited collections, and special issues of scholarly journals from 2012 and after. If you have suggestions for expanding this bibliography, please email them to Oecologies.

Oecologies also maintains a focused list of calls for papers that may be of interest to our membership. If you have inquiries about the CFPs listed here or are interested in promoting an Oe-relevant conference session, please email Oecologies.

Oecologies CFP: “Climates of Consciousness” (IMC Leeds 2021)

Call for Papers for Session Proposals
at the International Medieval Congress (IMC 2021)
Sponsored by the Oecologies Research Cluster
05–08 July 2021
University of Leeds

These sessions seek to explore how space and form — ecologies of consciousness — inform, challenge, and perpetuate reading, writing, consideration, and understanding in the medieval and early modern eras. Focusing on the “climates” of perceptions, philosophies, and cosmologies of the premodern world, they query and explore how immediate and perceived environments created and generated texts and concepts from the medieval and early modern eras that are reliant on aspects of form, both imagined and real. How do the ecological proclivities of premodern cultures and understandings inform our exploration of the past, present, and future?

Suggested topics, on any geographic area, may include, but are not limited to:

  • landscape and place studies
  • textual forms
  • environmental humanities
  • systems of thought
  • world building, “built” worlds, and their environment
  • relationships between “climates” of thought, literatures, and philosophies
  • ecological intersections in cultural outputs or paradigms

Submissions from a variety of disciplines, including but not limited to literatures, textual studies, cultural and social histories, and visual cultures, are encouraged. We welcome global, regional, and local approaches to the Middle Ages, and we encourage proposals by BIPOC scholars, international scholars, and scholars at all stages of their careers.

Please submit a 250-word proposal for a 15- to 20-minute paper. Proposals should include an abstract and accompanying one-page CV including email, current affiliation, and position. Please submit proposals as PDF or Word files by 25 September 2020 by email to both:

The 2021 General Call for Papers (LLC Pre-14th-Century Chinese Forum)

Panel Title: QUESTIONING HARMONY: ECOLOGICAL PERSPECTIVES ON PRE-14TH CENTURY CHINESE LITERARY AND VISUAL CULTURE

MLA Annual Convention, 2021, January 7-10, Toronto

Short description: This session questions the often-repeated “harmonious” view of human-nature relations to reveal the mutual impacts of human cultures and the earth’s systems in the interpretation of literary and visual works from pre-14th century China.

Long Description: The ever more frequent environment crises that have led to our current era being coined the “Anthropocene” have also spurred reflection on the part of humanists in a search through premodern literary traditions for alternative ideas and models of the relationships between humans and nature. This includes promising recent work by scholars of East Asian literary traditions. Yet, even in the face of abundant historical evidence for the steady march of environment degradation in the pre-modern period, scholars in the humanities still must wrestle with the persistent view that East Asian traditions project a monolithic and essentialized “harmonious” relationship between humans and nature. We seek to question this ahistorical view of harmony and invite papers that adopt ecocritical perspectives on pre-14th century Chinese literary and visual culture. Without denying that the “harmonious” view is one stream among many in elite and popular discourses on the place of humans in nature, we look forward to papers that will take into consideration the dynamic interactions and mutual impacts of human cultures and the earth’s systems in the interpretation of literary texts or a combination of literary and visual evidence from the pre-14th century period in China.

Topics on how works from premodern Chinese literary and visual culture can be productively brought into dialogue with ecocriticism could include:

1- Persistence in the face of environmental crisis in premodern Chinese literary and visual texts

2- Interactions and confrontations between the human and non-human in poetry, prose, or narratives, such as the genre, “records of anomalies.”

3- Humanistic investigations or discoveries in the plant and animal world in poetry and prose on flora and fauna

4- Connections and tensions between development and nature in new genres on urban space or the frontier

5- The Gendering of the Nature/Culture binary or the deconstruction of this binary

Guidelines for proposal submission: Please send your proposal to bridgwa1@swarthmore.edu by March 15, 2020. In your paper proposal please include your 1) paper title, 2) email address, 3) institutional affiliation, 4) short bio of 50 words; and 5) 250-word abstract.
