Call For Pitches: Tech and Nature

Earth Island Journal is seeking pitches for an upcoming special edition dedicated to technology and nature. The issue will explore how technology is often the source of much of the environmental damage that we are dealing with today, and how at the same time, it offers us the scope, or hope, of repairing that damage and perhaps even avoiding it in the future. It will also look into the practical and ethical limitations associated with relying on technology to get us out of some of the environmental messes we have created.

In other words, we are interested in investigating the full range of issues related to this complex relationship between technology and the natural world, including how it impacts our own interactions and understanding of nature and our place in it. We are looking for on-the-ground reports, as well as for essays, artworks, reflections, and think pieces of varying lengths.

Please send us your pitches by May 15. We plan to make assignments by early June and would need full submissions by mid-July.

The articles will most likely appear in our Autumn 2019 edition.

Please send your story ideas to submissions@earthisland.org with “Technology and the Environment Pitch” in the subject line.
