					View Vol. 11 No. 21 (2023): NALANS Special Issue: Capitalism, Anthropocene, and literature of the Global South

This issue aims at developing an extensive understanding of counter-hegemonic implementations where South-wide understandings are articulated through literary works about the Global South, considering the decolonial possibilities as a methodology that considers the epistemic variety in environmental studies. In doing so, this issue incorporates literary investigation into environmental issues with the objective of contributing to more equitable and sustainable development through a greater awareness of nature-society correlations. The issue aims to reevaluate the paradigms of ecological modernization, ecological democracy, political ecology, and decolonial and postcolonial approaches to ecological issues, considering it an epistemological project that calls for the fostering of a distinct approach in the assessment of nature-society relations.
