CALL FOR ABSTRACTS/PAPERS
We invite contributions to our proposed volume, Queer Landscapes: Mapping Queer Space(s) of Praxis and Pedagogy . For two decades, queer theory has provided a flexible methodology for engaging the world. This broad theoretical approach is slowly working to dissolve dialectical boundaries erected to contain rigid distinctions separating disciplines within the academy, and the academy itself from the world beyond. In doing so, queer theory has opened up new landscapes in diverse fields in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences, pushing us to reconsider the ways in which we organize and navigate knowledge.

In the past two decades, there has been a surge of literary and critical environmental works. Although ecocriticism has been a flourishing field of inquiry for some years now, literary critics are just beginning to explore literature and the environment from postcolonial perspectives. Postcolonial eco-/environmental criticism, albeit belatedly, has become a burgeoning field in the past few years. However, most eco-/environmental critics are heavily focused on contemporary environmental texts, so little or no attention has been paid to the aspects of nature in British or in Anglo-phone modern literature. Nature or the environment is rarely considered a part of the imperial colonial process in analyzing modern literary works.
