Haunted Nature: The Cultural Work of Haunting

Sladja Blazan
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, October 1, 2020

We are looking for 2 more articles for a collection of essays on "Haunted Nature", preferably from an indigenous perspective but other topics are welcome as well. The collection is a study of human entanglements with nature as seen through the mode of haunting. Together, the essays demonstrate how haunting and being haunted can elucidate our troubled relationships with our natural environments. Seen as an interruption of the present by the past, hauntings address contemporary anxieties concerning human involvement in the transformation of natural environments and their ecosystems, and our complicity in their collapse.

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 19, 2020

Literature in France has always had the potential to become a form of popular entertainment. However, what delighted families in La Bibliothèque Bleue has been forgotten or classified as literary “classics.” But popular literature, or “genre literature,” is more recent. Born in 19th-century newspapers when writers like Méry, Balzac, or Sue published their novels in serial form, its most emblematic writer is Alexandre Dumas. Unlike conventional works, where historical characters are magnified (epic tales) or relegated to the background (La Princesse de Clèves)Dumas’ novels staged characters who marked the history of France.
