  • Editor’s Note
    • Authors: Slovic S.
      Pages: 177 - 180
      Abstract: The late ecocritic Leonard Scigaj, in his book Sustainable Poetry: Four American Ecopoets, quoted a passage from a 1988 interview with poet W.S. Merwin that I often find myself thinking about these days. Merwin stated:… the cause of [my] anger is, I suppose, the feeling of destruction, watching the destruction of things that I care passionately about. If we’re so stupid that we choose to destroy each other and ourselves, that’s bad enough; but if we destroy the whole life on the planet! And I’m not talking about a big bang; I’m talking about […] the destruction of the seas, the destruction of species after species, the destruction of the forests. These are not replaceable. We can’t suddenly decide years down the line that we made a mistake and put it all back. The feeling of awe—something that we seem to be losing—is essential for survival. (Qtd in Scigaj 187)

  • Tracing the Modernist Roots of Ecological Thinking—Reflections on
           Conversations with W. S. Merwin
    • Authors: Wutz M; Crimmel H.
      Pages: 181 - 195
      Abstract: W. S. Merwin is an early and eerily prescient visionary about global sustainability and ecological activism, and a giant of World Letters, whose career spans eight decades and whose prodigious contributions total more than forty volumes of poetry, essays, memoirs, and prose. Few living writers have been as consistently productive as this quintessential Man of the Environment, known as much for his original poetry, prose, and landmark translations, as he is for his writings about ecosystems and environmental, indeed planetary, degradation.11

  • Redeeming Wastelands, Building Communities in the Old English Guthlac A
    • Authors: Bovaird-Abbo K.
      Pages: 196 - 223
      Abstract: Although ecocriticism has recently flourished in the scholarship of medieval English literature, the majority of attention has focused on Middle English literature;11 as Alfred K. Siewers notes, “Modern scholarship long believed that descriptions of nature in Anglo-Saxon literature tended to be more alienated and distanced in tone and theme than those in neighboring contemporary Insular literary cultures” (199). However, when we examine the literature of the Anglo-Saxon period, ecological concerns appear, even if seemingly on the margins. Such is the case, I argue, for the Old English poem Guthlac A, found in the late tenth-century Exeter Book, which details the religious life of Saint Guthlac. Guthlac, a member of the Mercian royal family born in 673 AD, abandoned a successful military life in order to enter a monastery at the age of twenty-four.22 A few years later, in 701 AD, he withdrew from the secular world even further by removing himself to the wild fens of East Anglia, where he lived for thirteen years, constantly repulsing demonic attacks, as attested by the various accounts of his life. In 740 AD, approximately thirty years after Guthlac’s death, which occurred in 714 AD, a monk of Crowland by the name of Felix composed the first-known hagiography of Guthlac, the Vita Sancti Guthlaci. Vernacular accounts soon appeared in various Old English texts, specifically, the Old English Martyrology, the Vercelli Homily XXIII, and an Old English prose Life.

  • Introducing Migrant Ecologies in an (Un)Bordered World
    • Authors: Oppermann S.
      Pages: 243 - 256
      Abstract: The world in which we live today is a world of migrations—processes that happen across borders and in spite of the tendency of building new frontiers, new fences. Living species, human groups, things and goods, as well as pathogens, germs, microbes, and viruses are constantly on the move. Some of them are driven by their evolutionary pathways, some others by political reasons and economic deprivation; but many of them, especially the human groups, are on the move because of sectarian conflicts, regional wars, and above all, ecological events. A close look at what is going on in the world of what we call “migrant ecologies” would reveal that what basically precipitates the displacement of common people—especially those who are the most “economically, environmentally and socially vulnerable” (Vigil 44)—are the negative impacts of anthropogenic climate change. Although only 23% of the United Nations reports mention a connection between climate change and migration, the term “climate refugees” is frequently used today to define people displaced by environmental factors.11 As Lester R. Brown explains, “One of the defining characteristics of our time is the swelling flow of environmental refugees: people displaced by rising seas, more-destructive storms, expanding deserts, water shortages, and dangerously high levels of toxic pollutants in the local environment” (“Environmental Refugees”). Hotter temperatures and drier conditions are also in the list; for example, a devastating drought in the Eastern Mediterranean, and especially in Syria, between 2006 and 2010 has sparked a massive social unrest that resulted in an unending civil war, assuming larger and always less containable dimension with the more recent intervention of Russia in the conflict. Although the reason of the uprising against the regime and eventual migration from this region is not limited to drought, water shortages, and crop failures only, the displaced 6 million people today are the representatives of migrant landscapes saturated with multifaceted social and economic conflicts. In his special report, “The Ominous Story of Syria’s Climate Refugees” (2015), John Wendle states that “Syria’s drought has destroyed crops, killed livestock and displaced as many as 1.5 million Syrian farmers. In the process, it touched off the social turmoil that burst into civil war.”22 Initially it was the combination of severe drought, bad government policies, and the resulting social violence that forced millions of Syrian farmers to move to the cities, which led to the collapse of already deteriorating urban infrastructures and hence to social violence driving millions of Syrians to seek refuge in Turkey. A similar event took place in a small town in the state of Guanajuato, Mexico in 1997. As explained by Amy McDermott,33 the town on the river Lerma had suffered severe drought that affected the entire crops and eventually led to the migration of local farmers and rural people. These farmers “depend on predictable weather to grow the crops they eat. When they know the rain isn’t coming, or their home has been destroyed in a flood, or some other climate-fueled event has upended their lives, families face limited options: starve or move” (“Mexico’s Climate Migrants”). Like in Syria, climate conditions and shrinking economic prospects in this region are “the primary factors driving Mexicans to migrate to the United States,” says McDermott. In fact, between 2005 and 2010, she states, 1.4 million Mexicans crossed the US border. This is another exemplary story that reflects “a growing global problem. Worsening droughts, floods, wildfires, and rising seas will drive millions from their homes, all around the world” (“Mexico’s Climate Migrants”).

  • Drought-Induced Migrations in Syria and Turkey
    • Authors: Ergİn M.
      Pages: 257 - 273
      Abstract: Human migration has, without a doubt, become one of the most significant consequences of environmental degradation. Although there cannot be exact predictions, “future forecasts vary from 25 million to 1 billion environmental migrants by 2050” (Rahman, “Climate-Induced Migration”). While there is a substantial body of scholarship analyzing the effects of migration on the environment, the impact of environmental factors on population flows has only fairly recently begun to attract researchers’ attention. This may be, in part, due to the difficulty of untangling environmental and social factors leading to migration. As Olivia Dun and François Gemenne remark in “Defining ‘Environmental Migration,’”Terms and concepts such as environmental migration, climate change-induced migration, ecological or environmental refugees, climate change migrants and environmentally-induced forced migrants are found scattered throughout the literature. The main reason for the lack of definition relating to migration caused by environmental degradation or change is linked to the difficulty of isolating environmental factors from other drivers of migration.

  • “Slow Violence” in Migrant Landscapes: “Hollow Villages” and

    • Authors: Zhou X.
      Pages: 274 - 291
      Abstract: As urbanization and industrialization are transforming the landscapes of China, a new geography of expanding deserts and newly built housing complexes for “ecological migrants” is emerging. Relocation of “climate refugees” has become a reality in China and other parts of the world.11 According to Edward Wong’s New York Times story “Resettling China’s ‘Ecological Migrants,’ ” in 2016 the Chinese government relocated329,000 people … from lands distressed by climate change, industrialization, poor policies and human activity to 161 hastily built villages. They were the fifth wave in an environmental and poverty alleviation program that has resettled 1.14 million residents of the Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, a territory of dunes and mosques and camels along the ancient Silk Road.

  • Tales of the Transamazonian: Hope and Disillusionment on a Route of
           Ecological Migrations 1
    • Authors: Acker A; de Oliveira N.
      Pages: 306 - 324
      Abstract: Tales of ecologically driven migrations have populated Brazilian culture since the existence of writings about national identity. Whether describing the extension of the agricultural “frontier” or the “adventurous” search for precious natural resources, they construct the myth of a country realizing itself through a march from the coast to the interior. This article examines the update, reinterpretation, and contestation of this national narrative in the context of the country’s industrialization and growing awareness of its environmental problems.

      Abstract: Dad reached out, pulled off the limp, scarlet cap of a thimbleberry, and handed it to me. I was maybe ten, standing with him near state highway 12 on the Idaho side of Lolo Pass. As I bit down, the sweet flavor spreading through me brought with it a new idea. Free food offered itself to the knowing taker, something for the mere gathering of it, available to all. Our capitalistic country, busy with packaging and selling, had taught me one way. Now I was seeing another.

  • Poems from the Black Earth Institute
    • Authors: Fisher-Wirth A.
      Pages: 354 - 354
      Abstract: When George Bush was elected for the second time, twelve years ago, the poet and scholar Patricia Monaghan and her husband, physician and activist Michael McDermott, decided that they’d either need to get drunk and stay drunk for four years, or fight back through the arts. So they created Black Earth Institute (BEI), a progressive think-tank dedicated to re-forging the links between art and spirit, earth and society. As its mission statement says, Black Earth Institute supports the artist as prophet and visionary who helps create a society attuned to earth’s rhythms and to the rights of all people.
