This training event, organised in partnership with the Environmental Humanities Hub at ILCS, will take the form of a roundtable discussion between editors and academics working and publishing in the field of Environmental Humanities. The editors will provide key insights into the process as well as recommendations for researchers seeking to publish in this field. 

Attendees will have the chance to hear about how to craft a manuscript that is effective and stands out in the Environmental Humanities. Speakers will offer guidance on understanding submission guidelines, the peer review process, responding to reviewer comments, and ethical considerations in publishing. When you register for this session, you will have the opportunity to submit a question to the roundtable discussion. There will also be an opportunity to ask any further questions on the day.

Professor Marco Armiero is the editor-in-chief of Resistance: A Journal of Radical Environmental Humanities. He is an ICREA Research Professor at the Institut d’Història de la Ciència (IHC) – Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain. Armiero has worked at the intersection of environmental history, political ecology, and environmental humanities. His scholarship is committed to social and environmental justice, bridging academia and communities.
Resistance: A Journal of Radical Environmental Humanities aims to establish itself as a hub for radical scholarship in the environmental humanities field. "Radical" in this context denotes approaches that challenge societal and academic norms, aligning with grassroots movements and marginalized groups while promoting research for more equitable socioecological relationships.
Professor Samantha Walton co-edits the journal Green Letters: Studies in Ecocriticism and became President of the Association for the Study of Literature and Environment (ASLE UKI) in 2023. Her research interests bring together the environmental humanities and health humanities, with a particular interest in ecocriticism and the politics and history of ‘wellbeing’. She is the director of the Research Centre for Environmental Humanities at Bath Spa University. As a literature scholar, she specializes in modern and contemporary British literature, with a focus on psychology and environmentalism, experimental poetics, fiction of the 1920s and 1930s, and the Scottish novelist and nature writer, Nan Shepherd.
Green Letters: Studies in Ecocriticism is the journal of ASLE-UKI (the UK-Ireland branch of the Association for the Study of Literature and the Environment). It is a peer-reviewed journal published by Routledge and supported by Bath Spa University and the University of Worcester. Green Letters explores interdisciplinary interfaces between humans and the natural and built environment.

The session will be moderated by Jamille Pinheiro Dias and Sophie Stevens and participants will be invited to contribute to the dialogue.

You will have the opportunity to submit a question via the registration form.
