I seek contributors to an edited collection focused on the intersection between disability studies and literary ecology, particularly as it plays out in American literature and culture. More specifically, the collection will investigate the role that literary ecology plays in upholding what might be called the ecosomatic paradigm. As a theoretical framework, the ecosomatic paradigm underscores the dynamic and inter-relational (and thereby ecological) process wherein human mind-bodies interface with the places, both built and wild, they inhabit. That is, the ecosomatic paradigm proceeds from the assumption that nature and culture interact in an ongoing, dialectical relationship that has implications for both the human subject and the natural world.
