About This Journal
Aims & ScopeGreen Humanities: A Journal of Ecological Thought in Literature, Philosophy & the Arts (ISSN 2377-9977) is an open-access, no-fee electronic journal established in 2015 to emphasize the importance and power of the humanities–a book, a poem or a work of art for example—to influence public opinion and inspire engagement with ecological issues and causes. Green Humanities aims to place the humanities on the frontlines not only of cutting-edge eco-criticism, but also of the environmental debates that will shape and determine our very world. We envision varied collaborations and juxtapositions of scholarship within the humanities as well as environmental sciences and related fields–all with the overarching goal of coaxing our global society toward a more sustainable future.
The journal is published on a semi-regular basis.
Authors are encouraged to submit materials related to a chosen theme (eg, QuebEcology: Voices from Quebec and the Greater North, Food and Sustainability). We accept scholarly articles, field notes, and poetry.
Articles: We seek papers of approximately 15 to 20 pages (4,500 to 7,500 words) that focus on the theme of the volume, showing how work in the humanities may play a key role.
Field Notes: Usually by invitation of the editors, these are miscellaneous creative items and observations.
Poems: We seek poems of approximately 10-40 lines that, like the papers we seek, are responding to our theme.
Our review process at Green Humanities: A Journal of Ecological Thought in Literature, Philosophy & the Arts employs a double-blind peer review of all scholarly submissions.
If you are interested in serving as a peer reviewer, please send a brief bio with your contact information to the editors at email@example.com
