Tenth year anniversary issue
This issue focuses on the North, both as perceived by visitors and as experienced by Arctic peoples, particularly in the face of current climatic, economic and political challenges. This section is complemented by a photograph series and creative writing on the North.
This issue is devoted to the Mediterranean world from a complex, de-essentialised and de-romantised perspective. It is viewed as a locus of intercultural connections and a crossroads of socio-environmental emergences. But particularly poignant at this moment is that socio-environmental perspective with the recent tragic mining accident: may this issue serve as a homage to the mining industry and its workers, reflected so aptly by the images by Carma Casulá from another mine, “Ojos Negros.”
Ecozon@ vol. 3, no. 2 opens with a special section “The Invention of Eco-Futures”, presenting 8 essays introduced and guest-edited by Ursula Heise. The essays (which are this time all in English) examine British, North American, European and Spanish novels and films, demonstrating the richness and subtlety of their contribution to environmental discourse. The general section contains an interview with Richard Kerridge, one of the founders of ASLE-UKI, and two essays. The first of these examines posthumanism in a French crime novel; the other reads the work of the Portuguese poet A.M. Pires Cabral through an ecocritical lens. The issue contains creative writing, art work, and half a dozen book reviews.
