Details About A Poetics of Rights

This special issue of Plumwood Mountain Journal, to be co-edited by Charmaine Papertalk Green and John Kinsella, will focus on the intersections between environmentalism, human rights and Indigenous rights issues. Our aim is to present an array of poetry that consolidates ‘rights’ and opens up ‘new’ perspectives on how ecologically-concerned poetry can be sensitive to First Nations cultures, countries, and knowledge, and also take into account global human rights focuses. These concerns might be expressed through poetry of climate rights that refutes invasive, colonising/exploitative industries that ride roughshod over the dignity and health of the biosphere. We welcome submissions from all poets who are sensitive to these issues and see poetry as a means of addressing injustice. Poems do not have to be directly about ‘issues’, but they need to be sensitised to the core focus (and foci) of the edition. We strongly encourage Indigenous/First Nations poets to submit work.
