Call for papers: Teaching Ecocriticism in Scandinavian Studies

Published 15 December 2021

Fifth Workshop of the Ecocritical Network for Scandinavian Studies (ENSCAN). University of Bonn, Germany, and online, 9-10 June 2022

Ecocriticism is a rapidly growing field not only within research, but also in teaching. In Scandinavian studies, more and more courses on ecocriticism are offered at all levels, and the need for supervision of ecocritical bachelor, master and ph.d. theses is likewise increasing. This necessitates critical reflection on our pedagogics, didactics, as well as on practical experiences of and with such teaching and supervision. However, while there is a lot of collaboration within research in ecocritical Scandinavian studies now, there has so far been only very little such collaboration concerning the teaching of ecocriticism.

The fifth workshop of the Ecocritical Network for Scandinavian Studies therefore provides a platform for critical reflection on pedagogical and didactic issues in Scandinavian studies ecocriticism, as well as for knowledge exchange and the discussion of concrete experiences with such teaching.
