John Parham – Obituary

It is with deep sadness that we learn of the death of our friend and colleague John Parham. While most strongly involved in our sister organisation ASLE-UKI, John was also well-known and close to many EASLCE members and a frequent participant in our conferences. John was a highly esteemed ecocritical scholar and a very kind, generous and witty person. We will miss him sorely.  

Reinhard Hennig, on behalf of the Board and all those in EASCLE who knew John, either in person or through his work.

John Parham – Obituary



Ecozon@ is a journal devoted to the relatively new field of literary and cultural criticism called ecocriticism. Ecocriticism can be broadly defined as the study of the representations of nature in cultural texts, and of the relationship between humans with other earth beings and their environment as seen in cultural manifestations.
