Focus and Scope

The purpose of AJE (the journal of ASLEC–ANZ) is to share information and ideas and to encourage writing and discussion about literature (ecocriticism), culture (ecohumanities), and the environment, the relationship between them, and 'the way in which cultural change is induced by adaptation to the environment'. AJE encourages environmentally oriented, nature-literate, place-based writing and nurtures ecologically informed scholarship of literature and other cultural creations.
