The editors Elisa Tizzoni and Roberta Biasillo look forward to receiving vigorous and innovative proposals.

Proposal for contributions interrogating these issues are welcome:

§ exploring colonial and post-colonial times through the lens of the environment;
§ unveiling the colonial and the subaltern in uneven socio-ecological dynamics in non-colonial settings;
§ stressing the political ecology dimensions of environmental histories;
§ fighting for environmental and climate justice: community responses to environmental hazards;
§ (un)gendering nature: eco-feminist and queer-ecology;
§ interpreting the nexus environment-indigeneity;
§ bridging environmental history and public history.​
