Andrea Campbell

Panel at RMMLA Conference, October 8-10 2009, in Snow Bird, Utah.

As the environmental movement gains more attention, many genres of
literature reveal their own insights of the natural world and how the
concept of "nature" varies between different people. This panel is
particularly interested in works by women of color and how they are using
literature to challenge definition, expand the boundaries of the
environment, and discover new routes towards environmental justice.
Prominent examples include works by Ana Castillo, Linda Hogan, and Toni
Morrison. Some important questions that papers may address:

What counts as an "environment"? How are traditional notions being
challenged by women of color?

Proposals are sought for a collection of essays about the changing image
of the businessman (or woman) through literature.

Due to interest in the topic of businessman through literature the
opportunity has arisen to partake in submitting an essay to a collection
based solely on this concept.

Topics are not limited to a specific area or concentration. We are
hoping to get a range of essays from different time periods and different
genres of interest. From Shylock, to Bartleby, and the novels of Dickens
to Martin Amis' fierce display of the businessman's persona of 1980s
America and Britain, all ranges of topics about the changing image of
the "businessman" are welcome.
