CFP (Now Closed): 2017 Special Section of Letras Hispanas on “Contemporary Iberian Ecocriticism and New Materialisms,” Editor: Luis I. Prádanos, Miami University (Deadline: June 1, 2017). The global proliferation of ecocriticism and environmental humanities is significantly enriching the depth and scope of literary and cultural studies worldwide. Iberian cultural scholars will definitely benefit from participating in this vibrant global debate as well as contributing to it. This special section aims to provide a platform for consolidating the theoretical and critical convergence of Iberian cultural studies and environmental humanities. We will consider essays dealing with contemporary Iberian cultural manifestations that are informed by theoretical and critical approaches related to the environmental humanities in general (e.g. ecocriticism, ecofeminism, animal studies, posthumanism, new materialisms, etc.). Letras Hispanas: Revista de Literatura y Cultura is a peer-reviewed, open-access online journal.
