Concept Note

Ecocriticism was inaugurated around 1980s as a result of environment revolution that had begun around 1960s after the publication of Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring. It gives importance to the relationship between human beings and nature, how are human beings affecting nature and vice versa. With time, it impacted in various other disciplines as well thereby evolving as an umbrella term. As an earth-centered approach, it intersected environment and culture and calling for collaboration between natural scientists, writers, literary critics, anthropologists, historians, and more.
