Camilla Brudin Borg, PhD in Comparative Literature
Ph.D, senior lecturer in Comparative literature specializing in ecocriticism. She has been writing about children’s picture books, the child and the woods and about Japanese anime from an ecocritical perspective. She is planning a project about female mountaineer ’s autobiographies.

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.
