CALL FOR PAPERS FOR A SPECIAL ISSUE: On the edge of the Anthropocene: crossing borders in southern African environmental history.
Environmental histories have long shaped the world of humans and other animals, and our shared and shifting environments. Our history is written on the landscapes – in ecosystems, climates and microclimates – and the past is borne by the creatures that inhabit them. They reflect overlapping histories of human mobility and settlement, accommodation and invasion, globalization and parochialism, colonialism and postcolonialism. Southern scholars still ...

Rust, Monani, and Cubitt, for instance, acknowledge “that popular cultural artifacts are at least as significant mediators of the human-environmental relationship and its attendant anxieties and joys as are literature ...
Scholars periodize Emily Dickinson’s poetry in several ways: of the American nineteenth century; as post-Puritan, post-Romantic, or pre-Modernist; of a secessionist moment. But how, we ask, does her life and work partake in what scholars today call the Anthropocene? Though the Anthropocene—the geological age we share with Dickinson—is a disputed term with varying meanings, it is most crucially recognized as a period in which human industry and activity has irreparably altered the global climate. Heralding the twilight of humanity, scholars across disciplines are ...
