This panel focuses on how ecocritical perspectives may be applied in literature education. Through three case studies, we explore how an emphasis on aquatic elements in texts and surroundings can facilitate students’ exploration of literary texts. The panel consists of three individual talks and discussion. This will be a hybrid event. If you wish to join via zoom, please send an email to melina.a.buns [at] uis [dot] no
