EASLCE Statement on the War in Ukraine

Kyiv Oblast, UkraineEASLCE is deeply concerned about the dramatic situation in Ukraine and the military attacks that Vladimir Putin and the Kremlin have decided to launch into the sovereign state of Ukraine. We express our explicit condemnation of the invasion of Ukraine and the impact this has on the lives of innocent people and those in affected areas caught up in this crisis. As an organisation dedicated to the study of literature, culture and environment, we share Europe’s long striving for peace…



The Association for the Study of Literature and Environment (ASLE) and The Association for Environmental Studies and Sciences (AESS) are excited to announce that they will hold their next conference jointly in Portland, Oregon on July 9-12, 2023 at the Oregon Convention Center. The theme of the conference will be “Reclaiming the Commons.”  This event will offer opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration, networking and professional development with a variety of sessions sponsored by both organizations.  


By promoting research and education in the fields of literary, cultural and environmental studies, EASLCE aims to cultivate a better understanding of the interrelationship between natures and cultures for a more sustainable future.

We recognize that dialogue and cooperation across disciplinary and cultural boundaries is essential to that task, and therefore seek to foster a diverse community of scholars, educators, and artists who share a concern for environmental issues.

In the pursuit of these aims, EASLCE supports:

  • scholarly and creative work in environmental literature, arts, and humanities;
  • activities that promote the dialogue between the academic community and the general public;
  • advocacy for and maintenance of ecologically sustainable practices.
