Rubén Cenamor Pona of the Department of English at Universitat de Barcelona, is inviting proposals for papers to be included in the edited volume: The Flourishing of New Men: Ecomasculinities in North America (provisional title). The deadline for proposal submissions is March 15, 2017.
The editor seeks to explore the new relationship between the American male and nature, and the challenges it poses to our times of economic, ideological and spiritual crisis. What kind of impact can ecomasculinity have in our globalized neoliberal capitalist world? What about gender relationships? How, if at all, can the “eco-man” pave the way to alternative models of masculinity and to more gender egalitarian societies?
Proposals (300-400 words) should be emailed to the Editor along with a short bio (150 words) by March 15, 2017. Candidates will receive a notification of acceptance by April 15, 2017. The deadline for first drafts (6,000-8000 words, notes and references included) is September 25, 2017. Final papers would be expected by December 18, 2017.
