CFP – “Environmental Ethics and Activism in Indigenous Literature and Film”, Canadian Review of Comparative Literature, Due Feb 1, 2015

Posted on Updated on

Call for Proposals on “Environmental Ethics and Activism in Indigenous Literature and Film”


for a
special bilingual issue of the

Canadian Review of Comparative Literature (CRCL)


“Environmental Ethics and Activism in Indigenous

Literature and Film”

co-edited by
Warren Cariou (University of Manitoba), Niigaanwewidam James Sinclair (University of
Manitoba) and Isabelle St-Amand (University of Manitoba)

This special journal edition aims to showcase comparative perspectives on the issues of environmental ethics and activism in Indigenous cultures, and also to highlight the relationships among different media and genres of Indigenous creative expression. We want to explore the diverse and interrelated forms of Indigenous creativity, including literature, film, new media and performance. Our comparative and bilingual approach seeks to explore themes of environmental ethics and activism in a contemporary context where resource extraction and industrialization are increasingly being countered by indigenized forms of thought and action. We encourage proposals that examine the discourses, aesthetics, and knowledges that are emerging at the intersections of public protest, artistic expression, and environmental ethics. Themes to be examined include but are not limited to:

Land and sovereignty
Relationships between human and other-than-human
Colonial violence and resource extraction
Urban rallies and embodied knowledge
Kinship and responsibilities
Resistance and resurgence
Territories of the imagination

Deadlines for Submissions:
Proposals (300 words): February 1st, 2015
Final submissions (preference given to articles between 6000 to 7500 words): July 15th, 2015

The CRCL is a pluralistic, bilingual and peer-reviewed journal devoted to projects and articles that speak to concerns in Canadian culture and literature and beyond in a comparative context. The CRCL encourage excellence and are blind to the stage of the scholar or his or her identity.
