CFP: NHR Special Issues on Ecocriticism

米国ホーソーン協会より,CFPのお知らせです。

Call for Papers
Spring 2018 Special Issue of the Nathaniel Hawthorne Review
"Hawthorne and the Environment: Ecocritical Perspectives"

Through depictions of forests and seashores, animals and plants, 
the wild and the domestic, Hawthorne’s writings abound with 
explorations of the human relationship to the physical environment. 

Yet the moral and ethical significance of nature as physical, 
biological environment has often been overlooked in critical 
interpretations of “Nature” as symbol in Hawthornian romance. 

While Hawthorne’s Transcendentalist contemporaries have been 
central to ecocritical studies, Hawthorne’s works have yet to receive 
deep attention for their concerns with the physical environment.  

We invite submissions for a special issue of the NHR, dedicated to 
fresh examinations of Hawthorne’s representations of nature and environment from an ecocritical perspective.  
Essays might draw from Hawthorne’s fiction, but also his travel 
writing, journals, and letters. Possible topics:

 Ecofeminism and Hawthorne
 The pastoral and ecocriticism
 “Nature and Nature’s God”: environment, politics, and religion
 Wilderness and forest
 The unnatural
 Decay, degeneration, deformity, and disease
 Urban development
 Fire, smoke, hearths, kilns
 Liminal spaces and portals to nature: sea-shores, dooryards, 
   gardens, forest paths, the frontier
 Nature as artistic inspiration
 Nature and the “untutored savage”
 Animals and insects: bear, dog, deer, butterfly, lizard, snake, 
   monkey, pig, hen, horse
 Weeds and flowers
 Gardens and gardeners
 Hunters and hunting
 Oaken structures
 The primeval
 Natural resources: lime, timber, game, crops, medicine
 Nature’s detritus: burrs, twigs, leaves
 “Our great, creative Mother”: nature and the maternal
 Nature, science, and magic

Please submit abstracts of approximately 300-500 words 
by 15 March 2017 with a two-page cv to Nancy Sweet
Complete essays of 4500-6000 words would be due
