Theme: "Sustenance and Sustainability"

For our autumnal scholarly issue, we are interested in examinations of food, agriculture, sustainability, remediation, consumption, marketing, distribution, and allocations of resources in literature and popular culture. Can we eliminate or manage invasive species by eating them? How is food rhetoric inherently ecological? What is the relationship between science writing and creative writing in this discourse? How can we sustain postcolonial environments? How is Kudzu sustainable? Send us pedagogical essays on approaches to teaching sustainability and on civic engagement. What is sustainable sexuality? How does ideology feed our understanding of sustainability? Essays on the ways that writing sustains us and sustainable (and ecological) approaches to writing and publishing are also encouraged. We are especially interested in book reviews, be they ever so tangentially connected to our theme.
