We’d like to invite an art historian, comparatist, or literary scholar in the field of the environmental humanities to contribute to our edited volume Romantic Legacies: Transnational and Transdisciplinary Contexts, to be published in the Routledge Studies in Comparative Literature series in 2019.
The volume comprises two major national groupings: first, the major Romantic traditions that developed in Germany, Britain, France, and the US; and second, the influence and cross-pollination of these traditions in Russia, China, India, and Japan. The volume is divided into five paradigms—Realist, Fin de siècle, (Post)Modern, Oriental, and Environmental Romanticism—to show how these legacies reflect and engage the values, tensions, and contradictions of ensuing historical periods.
We’re looking for an article of 5,000-7,000 words that involves visual arts to address the legacy of Romanticism in the environmental humanities from transnational and/or transdisciplinary perspectives. We will also consider other avenues of comparison if they engage this legacy in terms of the environmental humanities. The article could be a case study or deal with multiple artists/writers. If you’re interested, please send an abstract of 200-250 words and a brief CV to Drs John Michael Corrigan at firstname.lastname@example.org and Shun-liang Chao at email@example.com by 30 March 2018. The deadline for the article is 15 July 2018 if accepted.
