Lagoonscapes

The Venice Journal of Environmental Humanities
Aims & Scope

Lagoonscapes. The Venice Journal of Environmental Humanities is a digital, open-access, international, and trans-disciplinary journal based at The New Institute Center for Environmental Humanities of Ca’ Foscari University in Venice. Lagoonscapes welcomes submissions from all the core disciplines of the Environmental Humanities, including literary and media studies, critical theory, visual arts, environmental and cultural history, political theory, and anthropology. Contributions are subject to a double-blind peer review process and are published by Edizioni Ca’ Foscari. The journal aims to promote a cross-disciplinary dialogue on contemporary and historical environmental issues, investigating relationships with non-human forms of life and the natural world from decolonial, feminist, and activist perspectives. Venice and its lagoon are a privileged location for sensing and interrogating the effects of human activity and climate change regarding the biological, cultural, and social dynamics of local ecosystems. The journal is associated with the pioneering Master in Environmental Humanities offered by Ca’ Foscari University and it aspires to become an international platform for scholars, artists, and activists to engage with the growing field of the Environmental Humanities.
