Just a reminder that the deadline is fast approaching for submissions to the Romantic sustainability project:

Call for Chapter Proposals
Chapter proposals are invited for an edited volume on sustainability and the environment in British Romantic literature, tentatively titled Romantic Sustainability: Endurance and the Natural World, 1780-1830. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, sustainability and environment in relation to the following:

• Creativity
• Environmental disasters, real or fictional
• Pedagogy
• Service-based learning
• Activism
• Progress and preservation
• Ethics
• Nature
• Animals
• The Romantic canon
• Transnational/transatlantic connections
• Technology
• The supernatural

Proposals may address works by traditional canonical figures, but chapters on a broader range of authors are encouraged as well.

The general editor of the Ecocritical Theory and Practice series, published by Lexington Books (an imprint of the Rowman and Littlefield Publishing Group), has expressed interest in this project. Once contributors are determined, a book proposal that includes chapter abstracts will be submitted to the general editor for review.

Please send 250-word abstracts and brief CV electronically to Ben P. Robertson (bprobertson@troy.edu) by 1 November 2014.

Completed chapters (original, not previously published) of about 7000 words, including notes and bibliographical information, will be due 1 May 2015.
