Message 1: Ecology and Language (Ecolinguistics)...

From: C.A. Stibbe <id4c-stbbasahi-net.or.jp>
Subject: Ecology and Language (Ecolinguistics)...


The recently launched 'Language and Ecology' website
(http://www.ecoling.net) has proved extremely popular, with viewers
from more than 40 countries. This is a living, developing website,
devoted to co-operation among researchers who analyse the impact of
discourses on the health of the planet. Among recent additions are the
following:

a) The summer issue of Language and Ecology Online Magazine is now
out. This issue focuses on the relationship between human health, the
health of the planet, and the discourses which can improve or destroy
both (see http://www.ecoling.net/magazine.html)

b) Full details of a symposium on Language and Ecology to be held in
Madison in July 2005 have been published (see
http://www.ecoling.net/aila2005.html)

c) The bibliography of books and papers on ecolinguistics has been
expanded, and new photographs added to the visual discourses of nature
section.

We are now looking for contributions (articles, brief comments,
queries) for the Autumn 2004 issue of the magazine. Please contact us
if you are interesting in contributing. All contributions are reviewed
by associates of the centre.

Viewing the website and participating in the Centre for Language and
Ecology is entirely free. To view the website please go to
