CFP: MLA Teaching Postcolonial Environmental Literature and Media

Monday, October 22, 2018 - 4:04pm
Cajetan Iheka/Modern Languages Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 30, 2018

Essay proposals are invited for a volume in the MLA Options for Teaching series entitled Teaching Postcolonial Environmental Literature and Media, to be edited by Cajetan Iheka. In the past decade, critical readings of texts from formerly colonized societies have increasingly combined postcolonial and ecocritical perspectives. The rising interest in postcolonial ecocriticism is reflected in curricular offerings, which include entire courses or sections of courses devoted to novels, stories, plays, films, and other media focused on environmental issues in postcolonial settings. The proposed volume sets out to establish the scholarship on the teaching of postcolonial ecocriticism.

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD: A HKS SYMPOSIUM While the word “community” is more often than not suffused with a benevolent glow, connoting the virtues purportedly associated with groups of people—shared values and heritage, constancy and solidarity—“neighbourhood” is a term that has a more ambiguous, even troublesome, valency. Neighbourhoods, depending on one’s point of view, can be good or bad, welcoming or hostile, safe or dangerous, dull or vibrant.
