Lagoonscapes. Vol. 1, n. 2 - December 2021. Humanities, Ecocriticism and Multispecies Relations. Proceedings (part I)


This monographic issue delves decidedly into the multiple facets of the Environmental Humanities debate. It gathers the proceedings of the conference Humanities, Ecocriticism and Multispecies Relations, which was held at Ca’ Foscari University on 28-29 September 2020, and which was dedicated to Environmental Studies from a multidisciplinary perspective.
The concept note of the event, whose proceedings Lagoonscapes is delighted to offer to its readers in two dedicated issues (this is the first part), proposed a sort of journey around the world through cultures, in particular of indigenous peoples native to Asia, Oceania, Northern Europe and the Americas.
