Current Edition Title: ENVIRONMENTAL HUMANITIES, DIGITAL HUMANITIES AND HUMAN RIGHTS

Over the past ten years we have witnessed increasing attention paid to environmental concerns, human rights and the quality of democracies. We are trying to find a new balance, capable of granting justice, across fields such as economics, architecture, food, politics” (Mario Cucinella, landscape architect). It is our opinion that the Humanities have not only an important role to play, but also a moral and intellectual obligation to participate in the discussion.
The 2016 AISCLI Summer School offers a contribution to this debate, it is meant to be an introduction to “thinking postcolonial about postcolonial matters” through a close examination of the contemporary literary, artistic and intellectual productions within the English Speaking World.
