Abstract

This issue of Literary Cultures explores land as a literary theme in modern and contemporary works. The issue specifically focuses on literature wherein land may be interpreted as vulnerable or under threat. Every article has a unique perspective on the relationship between humans and land, the sometimes volatile aspect of this relationship and its textual representations. The aim of this issue is to encourage a nuanced conversation about how land is altered and affected by human behavior, and the way colonialism, industrialism, and socio-political structures have impacted our understanding of land. The issue will offer a unique way of looking at issues like climate change, rapid urbanization and the loss of land, by contextualizing them through the lens of race, warfare and economic and social disparities.
