Call For Papers

Seeking proposals for Critical Plant Studies, a book series published by Lexington Books, an imprint of Rowman & Littlefield. This book series calls us to re-examine in fundamental ways our understanding of and engagement with plants, drawing on diverse disciplinary perspectives. A sampling of topics appropriate for this series includes but is not limited to:
• Agriculture, plant medicine, and other applied uses of plants
• Representations of plants in literature, art, film, and popular culture
• Relationships between humans and plants
• Boundaries and distinctions between plants and animals
• Plants and the environmental crisis
• Phytosemiotics and plant communication
• Plant sensation and consciousness
• Vegetal agency
• Plant ethics and veganism
• Invasive plants
• Plants as objects of allegory, metaphor, or fable
• Diversity of plants, including algae, moss, and ferns
• Plants as embedded in larger ecosystems

Please send proposals and queries about Critical Plant Studies to General Editor Douglas Vakoch (dvakoch@meti.org) and Acquisitions Editor Courtney Morales (cmorales@rowman.com).

Critical Plant Studies encourages work grounded in the humanities and social sciences that provides innovative reformulations of the scope and practice of critical plant studies. Books in this series include both monographs and edited volumes that target academic audiences. To introduce critical plant studies to readers not familiar with this field, the series publishes work that is relevant to those engaged in critical plant studies, while also being of interest to scholars from the author’s primary discipline. Among the books of special interest for the series are those that examine plants with reference to particular countries or regions of the world, or with respect to specific cultural, philosophical, religious, or literary traditions. Contemporary and historical works are equally appropriate. We especially welcome books that bridge academia and activism.
