Confy on 'Environment and Literature'

UGC Sponsored
Two-Day National Seminar
Environment and Literature
(Golden Jubilee Seminar)
March 30-31, 2017
Organised by
Kakatiya University
Warangal, India-506 009

Call for Papers

The issues that the seminar addresses include: What is “the environment”? What is “environmental literature”? What is its purpose? What is the role of “literature” in the human relationship with the environment? The environmental literature has a long history as early as the fifteenth century from all corners of the globe. It originated from slave spirituals, sermons, captivity narratives, landscape art, plays poems, cartoons, science fiction, bumper stickers, billboards, films, laws, architecture, and the University curriculum itself. There are no geographical, temporal, linguistic, or genre confines to what we could “read” as a “text” for its environmental themes. The seminar serves as a forum for the literary scholars, environmental historians, environmental philosophers and environmental writers and activists to deliberate their voices.
