by Jessica C. Murphy
Early English Studies Journal is accepting articles that are concerned with any aspect of medieval or early modern green/environmental topics for the 2010 issue, “Green Thoughts in the Medieval and Early Modern Worlds.” We welcome articles between 20 and 30 pages including notes that interrogate ecological or environmental questions that arise in literary and historical texts approximately between the years 1400 and 1700. We are looking for a wide variety of theoretical and historical approaches to the idea of the “green,” which could include but is not limited to investigations of interior and exterior landscapes, the conception of the pastoral, gardens in literature, the effects of pollution, literary celebration of country-house poems, scientific writings and treatises, and journals that record weather or other effects on the land and sea.
