Association for the Study of Literature, Environment & Culture
Australia & New Zealand (ASLEC-ANZ)
Our membership comprises writers, artists, cinematographers, and musicians working inside and outside the university, as well as academics working in and across several areas of the ecological humanities, including ecocritical literary and cultural studies, environmental arts, environmental history, science and technology studies, anthropology, queer, feminist and anti-colonial theory, ecophilosophy and cultural geography.
At the start of 2022 we began a collective process to decolonise the organisation.
ASLEC-ANZ is devoted to:
- Fostering scholarly and creative work that explores the relationship between human cultures, natural history and planetary ecologies;
- Sharing information and ideas about how the arts and humanities are responding to the global environmental crisis;
- Encouraging discussion, publications and practices responding to environmental issues and natural history from diverse creative, critical and cultural perspectives; and
- Promoting the role of critical arts scholarship and creative practice in the interdisciplinary field of the environmental humanities.
ASLEC-ANZ is affiliated with a worldwide network of similar associations, of which the first was founded in the USA in 1992 (www.asle.org), followed by Korea (ASLE-Korea), the UK & Ireland (ASLE UKI), Japan (ASLE), Europe (EASCLE), India (OSLE and ASLE) and Canada (ALECC), with more in the process of formation elsewhere.
ASLEC-ANZ welcomes your participation in our organisation. Join us.
