CFP Ecomedia Panel: Nature and Culture through the Visual Lens


EASLCE-NIES joint conference in Tartu, April 22-26, 2014


In recent years, ecomedia studies has been establishing itself as a vibrant interdisciplinary extension of literary ecocriticism and its modes of critical analysis. This panel aims to explore the ecomedia dimensions of the EASLCE-NIES conference theme of “Framing Nature” ( by fostering discussion of how such framing happens in visual culture and non-print media such as photography, comics, TV, film, computer games, and digital media. What are the specifics, potentials, and limitations of different ecomedia forms and what does this mean for the framing of nature? How do we articulate theories and practices of ecomedia studies? What might we expect from ecomedia as a form of art, advocacy, and/or activism? These are some of the questions we would like to address in this panel. Both theoretical approaches and analyses of specific texts are welcome.


Please send a 300-500 word abstract with your name and affiliation to Alexa Weik von Mossner at and Nicole Seymour at by September 15, 2013. We will notify you promptly as the EASLCE panel proposal deadline is October 1st.
