Webinar by the University of Ostrava

With an eye to the rapidly growing field of environmental humanities, the webinar will offer diverse takes on the US environment from the perspective of the humanities. Both students and faculty of the English Department (https://ff.osu.eu/kaa/) will briefly introduce the field of environmental humanities and especially ecocriticism. They will examine the ways Californian writers helped form environmental movements and formulate their principles.

In a separate presentation, John Steinbeck’s work will be scrutinized through ecocritical/ecofeminist lens. Last but not least, the webinar will highlight how environmental racism and justice feature in contemporary African American literature and Hollywood production set in Louisiana, a state ravaged by hurricanes and the petrochemical industry.

Speakers: Petr Kopecký, Jan Beneš, Parisa Changizi and Karla Rohová

Moderator: Petr Kopecký
