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.
