General Issue

As the climate crisis unfolds, what is the role of postcolonial approaches to environmental and climate issues? How can the environmental humanities and postcolonial studies converge to illuminate each other’s blind spots? The SPECIAL FOCUS of FES 13 traces some of the routes that connect postcolonialism and the environmental humanities from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. The contributors’ critical reflections tackle the debate on the schisms between postcolonialism and ecocriticism; the silenced toxic legacies of colonialism in Africa; the capacity of ‘nature’ to speak; soil as a new standpoint to discuss postcolonial Pacific poetry; the role of AI as a tool to connect posthumanism, postcolonialism and the Anthropocene; and indigenous contributions to the development of an ecological and political consciousness in the Americas.
