Call for Expressions of Interest for new Editors

Environmental Humanities is currently seeking expressions of interest for two new Co-Editors to take over the leadership of the journal from Thom van Dooren (Sydney) and Elizabeth DeLoughrey (UCLA).

Environmental Humanities is an international, open-access, journal that is published by Duke University Press under a partnership with five universities. The journal was founded seven years ago (2012), and in this time has established itself as a leading venue for the publication of high-quality research in the emerging field of the environmental humanities. The journal prides itself on its commitment to publishing innovative interdisciplinary work by scholars of all career stages, from around the world. We have placed a particular emphasis on scholarship that brings environmental issues (broadly construed) into dialogue with the intersectionality of race, gender, indigeneity, and species, as well as ongoing processes of colonisation, globalisation, and extractivism.

Deadline for EOIs: 16 November 2018
