Studies in Literature, Culture, and the Environment

This interdisciplinary and international book series aims to bring together current approaches in the environmental humanities (particularly in the fields of ecocriticism, environmental history, and environmental
justice), with a focus on European contexts. It comprises thematic and theoretical studies which engage
ecological issues, climate change, and the discourse of the Anthropocene, seeking to understand the forms
of their representation across different media, cultures, and historical periods. Studies in Literature, Culture,
and the Environment aim to connect the environmental humanities to the social and natural sciences and
thus to contribute to the remediation of ecological problems.
The series comprises monographs and edited volumes in both German and English. Book proposals are
welcome and may be submitted to the editors. All publications will be peer reviewed.
