EACLALS 2023: Imagining Environmental Justice in a Postcolonial World

du 6 juin 2023 au 10 juin 2023

EACLALS Triennial Conference 2023, 6-10 June

Welcome to the 18th triennial conference of the European Association for Commonwealth Literature and Language Studies (EACLALS), which will take place in Paris, 6-10 June 2023. The organising committee aims to create the best conditions possible for the EACLALS community to enjoy the kinds of enriching conversations that have distinguished previous conferences. The initiative is supported by the French Society for Postcolonial Studies (SEPC/Société d’Études Postcoloniales) and Sorbonne Nouvelle University, which will provide the venue for the event. The EACLALS conference was last held in France in 1988, in Nice, so it was high time for us to host you all.

The conference theme for 2023, Imagining Environmental Justice in a Postcolonial World, invites delegates to:

bring postcolonial literatures and arts into conversation with environmentalism;
investigate the power of narratives in all literary genres, as well as images and artistic performances, to evoke environmental injustice; and
explore the breadth of what environmental justice may mean in postcolonial contexts

Contributions may reflect the variety of approaches to the overall topic of environmental justice.

We are honoured to host the EACLALS triennial conference and hope to make the Paris edition a valuable experience of exchanging, sharing and learning.
