updated: 
Wednesday, October 21, 2015 - 5:39pm
Natures 2016: an interdisciplinary environmental humanities conference

Our theme invites exploration of the habitats and/or hazards of any aspect of humanities studies. Papers may explore the conference theme as applied to the texts of humanities studies (e.g. the hazardous spaces of "Jane Eyre"), or the various crises that threaten the material world now or in the past (e.g. popular culture depictions of pollution). Presenters are invited to (re)frame the terms of the theme in ways relevant to their projects.
Topics may include, but are not limited to:
•Close readings of texts (written, physical, and/or visual), from any period
•Domesticity, urbanity, public/private, setting in literature, history, art, and popular culture
•Pollution, scarcity, competition over resources
