At the dawn of ‘ecocriticism’ as a discipline of study within the Humanities, Glotfelty and Fromm (1996), in the first general reader in the matter, defined it as the critical practice that examines the relationship between literary and cultural studies and the natural world. In general terms, during the past two decades, ecocriticism has denounced the anthropocentric and instrumental appropriation of nature that has for so long legitimized human exploitation of the nonhuman world.

From state-sponsored propaganda to cartoons, photography, and cinema newsreels, the cultural and political work done in service of modern warfare is significantly visual. At the same time (and despite considerable efforts to also subdue this aspect of war), much of the material reality depicted is inescapably explicit and brutal: broken bodies, destroyed cities, devastated natural environments.

Slavery and Sexuality in Classical Antiquity

We are inviting chapters of 6000-7000 words for an edited collection that explores the intersection of slavery and sexuality in the ancient world. The past twenty years have seen ground-breaking scholarship that has illuminated Greek and Roman prostitution, and this volume will broaden the area of study to document more fully the role of sex in the lives of slaves who were not prostitutes, and to consider the various ways in which sexuality and slavery were interconnected in the minds of the ancients. Chapters might include discussion of the following issues:

Of particular interest: issues of access, acceptance, justice, and human rights.

We invite essays, commentary, reviews, and visual art that meditate on these themes. Our expectations are as follows:
