Towards "Environmental Humanities"? Ecocriticism in Theory and Practice 

Over the past decades, the climate crisis has risen to the forefront of social and environmental concerns. In literary and cultural studies, there has been a corresponding rise of interest in ecological issues, ranging from literary (critical) engagement (climate and ecocollapse fiction, literary ecocriticisim imagination, ecofeminism and environmental justice, ecological citizenship and transnationalism).

This lecture series constitues a foray into the variety of ecoliterary (and ecomedial) depictions of anthropogenic climate change and the diversity of ecocritical approaches. 

As this lecture series is part of the Stuttgart Change Labs project 'The Climate Crisis in the (English Foreign Language) Classroom', we also invite discussions of how to include environmental thinking into educational agendas and of how to implement an ecologically engaged educational practice.
