Call For Manuscripts: Ecocriticism Unbound

We are looking for innovative book proposals for our new series “Ecocriticism Unbound”. We are particularly interested in work that redefines the limits of ecocriticism and brings posthumanist theory to bear on a variety of cultural texts.

We are looking for innovative book proposals on the environmental humanities for this new book series. As ecocriticism expands in the Anthropocene to include an ever-wider array of new approaches, more global regions and languages, and more cross-fertilization of disciplines, our series focuses on boundary-shifting research undertaken during the rapid transformation of environments and ecosystems of our world.  

We invite submissions for monographs or edited volumes that redraw and reimagine ecocriticism’s boundaries, whether those be of genre, form, media, language, geography, nation, race, gender, bodies, species, or otherwise. We are particularly interested in book projects that form new and unlikely eco-associations, or that seek to reorient the parameters of ecocritical discourse and posthumanist theory, especially beyond Anglophone texts and contexts. The aim of our series is to foreground research that questions and disrupts not only our understanding of a range of cultural phenomena through an ecocritical lens, but also our assumptions about what ecocriticism really is and does, and where it is heading. 

If you would like to submit a proposal or book manuscript for inclusion in the series, or if you have further questions about the publishing process, please contact acquisitions editor Myrto Aspioti ( 

 All manuscripts in the series are peer-reviewed and in English, though volumes studying other languages and beyond the Anglophone contexts are equally welcome. 

Proposals are reviewed by the series editors, drawing on the expertise of our international Advisory Board, before undergoing full peer review from at least two academics in related areas. Two to four volumes are published annually.
