Medieval Ecocriticisms -- call for papers

Collection to be edited by Heide Estes
Amsterdam University Press

This collection of essays seeks to include a wide variety of papers from the perspectives of time, discipline, and approaches to ecocriticism. Ideally, the collection as a whole will provide numerous ways in to the topic of both ecocriticism and medieval studies, from perspectives including Object-Oriented Ontology, Deep Ecology, Critical Animal studies, Ecofeminism, and others; disciplines ranging across literature, history, art, theology, archaeology, architecture; and across time scales and geographic areas as wide as possible (within the general parameters of the European middle ages).

Papers that draw connections, implicit or explicit, between contemporary environmental issues and medieval texts and/or artifacts, are welcome.

The tentative timetable for editing and production of the book would be:

Submission of title, abstract, anticipated length of paper (in words): March 31, 2015
Submission of papers for volume: July 31, 2015
My review of papers complete: October 15, 2015
Revised papers submitted: January 15, 2016
Volume submitted to AUP: January 30, 2016
Peer-review completed: April/June 2016
Definitive manuscript submitted, incorporating PR revisions: September/October 2016
Publication date: late spring or summer 2017
