Association for the Study of Literature and Environment (ASLE) Tenth Biennial Conference: "CHANGING NATURE: MIGRATIONS, ENERGIES, LIMITS"; May 28-June 1, 2013, University of Kansas, Lawrence - deadline to submit: November 15, 2012
The ASLE decennial conference theme is intended to reflect some of the most engaging current conversations within the environmental humanities and across disciplines, and to link those discussions to the transnational nexus of energy, labor, borders, and human and nonhuman environments that are so fundamentally "changing nature," and with it the widely varied kinds of environmental critique we practice, art we make, and politics we advocate. Migrations--of humans, of non-human creatures, of "invasive species," of industrial toxins across aquifers and cellular membranes, of disease across species and nations, of transgenic pollen and GM fish-have changed the meanings of place, bodies, nations, and have lent new urgency to the old adage that "everything is connected to everything." Energies--fossil, renewable, human, spiritual, aesthetic, organic-radically empower our species for good and for ill, and make our individual and collective choices into the Anthropocene. And those choices are profoundly about Limits on resources, climate, soil, and water; about voluntary and involuntary curbs on individual and collective consumption and waste; about the often porous and often violently marked borders of empire, class, race, and gender.
We seek proposals for papers, panels, roundtables, workshops, and other public presentations that address the intersections between representation, nature, and culture, and that are connected to the conference's deliberately broad and, we hope, provocative theme. As always, we emphatically welcome interdisciplinary approaches; readings of environmentally inflected fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, and film; and proposals from outside the academic humanities, including submissions from artists, writers, practitioners, activists, and colleagues in the social and natural sciences.
All proposals must be submitted by November 15, 2012. We will evaluate your proposal carefully, and notify you of its final status by January 31, 2013. For questions about the program, please contact Paul Outka, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
