Edgar Platen, PhD in German
Environmental Humanities (“Green” Humanities) can neither exclusively be 'ecological criticism’, since this theoretical approach refers primarily to the North American genre of nature writing, nor refer solely to ecological phenomena, because concepts of sustainability are expressly built on multifaceted and multicausual models and include, e.g. economical, social and cultural angles, among others. My research focusses on the connections between the various multifaceted models of sustainability in literary representations and their language-specific ethics in contemporary discourses, e.g. on the environment, poverty, history of technology, globalization, migration and transculturality.
