Call For Papers

Chapter proposals are invited for two new book projects, “Ecofeminist Intersections” and “New Voices in Ecofeminist Activism,” due by March 1, 2015. Both books explore the manifold ways that ecofeminism has been used across a range of disciplines in the humanities and social sciences, including but not limited to such fields as literary criticism, history, philosophy, religious studies, women’s studies, anthropology, sociology, psychology, economics, geography, and political science. Current doctoral students are especially encouraged to submit proposals for “New Voices in Ecofeminist Activism,” though all proposals will be considered for both books.

We invite proposals for chapters that explicitly address the intersections between ecofeminism and other approaches or perspectives (for example, posthumanism, postcolonial studies, or queer studies). We especially encourage authors to highlight the unique contributions that ecofeminism, in combination with other approaches, brings to their primary discipline.

Interested authors should send a 300-word abstract, 200-word biography, and sample of a previously published chapter or article to dvakoch@ciis.edu by March 1, 2015. First drafts of full chapters (6000 words) are due by September 1, 2015, and final versions are due November 1, 2015.

The editor of “Ecofeminist Intersections” and “New Voices in Ecofeminist Activism,” D. A. Vakoch, is Professor of Clinical Psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies, as well as general editor of Lexington Books’ Ecocritical Theory and Practice Series. Vakoch’s earlier edited books include “Ecofeminism and Rhetoric: Critical Perspectives on Sex, Technology, and Discourse” (2011), “Feminist Ecocriticism: Environment, Women, and Literature” (2012), and (with F. Castrillón) “Ecopsychology, Phenomenology, and the Environment: The Experience of Nature” (2014).

“Ecofeminist Intersections” and “New Voices in Ecofeminist Activism” will be guided by Quinby’s (1990, 126) observation that “Like the ecology and feminist movements from which it derives, ecofeminism is not devoid of impulses to develop a ‘coherent’ theory.” And yet, Quinby argues, coherence is limited in the face of modern power relations through which domination occurs. By Quinby’s (1990, 123) analysis, ecofeminism is most effective in opposing the oppressions of modern power by fostering a range of practices and theories: “Against such power, coherence in theory and centralization of practice make a social movement irrelevant or, worse, vulnerable, or—even more dangerous—participatory with the forces of domination.” Contrary to this pull toward uniformity, “Ecofeminist Intersections” and “New Voices in Ecofeminist Activism” will explore the variety of ecofeminisms that have developed since d’Eaubonne coined the word “ecofeminism” in 1974.
