“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

New Environmental Humanities Journal

Called Environmental Humanities, for ease of recollection! PDF here.

Dear EH Editorial Board members

Please find attached a notice announcing the pending launch of our new journal. Below is a general and ongoing call for papers in email form.

It would be fantastic if you could circulate this email far and wide (with the attachment where possible). At this stage we are in the process of posting it to all of the relevant groups and networks of which we are aware, but it has become very clear over the last few months that there are plenty of individual scholars and even larger groups working in the Environmental Humanities that we have not yet encountered.

As you will see in the attached document, we have set up a range of different options for people to subscribe for notification of future issues of the journal.

Thank you again for very much your involvement in this journal.

Thom and Debbie


Subject: Notice of new journal: Environmental Humanities


Dear fellow environmental humanities scholars

We are pleased to announce the pending launch of a new open-access, interdisciplinary journal: Environmental Humanities.

The attached document provides some basic information about the journal, including the list of eminent scholars who have agreed to serve on the Editorial Board.
Further information about the journal can be found at our new website: www.environmentalhumanities.org

We would like to take this opportunity to issue an open and ongoing call for papers for the journal. We aim to publish the best interdisciplinary scholarship on the environment coming out of the humanities and we are confident that the growing and vibrant international community of environmental humanities scholars will support us in this effort.

There are various ways to keep up to date with relevant news and new issues of the journal. Please see the 'About EH' page of the website.
