Since the early 2000s, the idea of “liquidity” has been mobilized in discourses ranging from social theory to aesthetics, from informatics to architecture, to describe a new relationship with the networked environments of life within global capital. More specifically, within the study of moving image culture, we have seen an increasing turn toward affective relations, plasticity, resonances and flows, whereby images and sounds—no longer grounded in an analogical relation to the real—are seen variously as malleable, untethered, “viral,” or fluid.

The interdisciplinary field of the environmental humanities offers new ways of considering tropical disasters.  Hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis and similar incidents were once thought to be acts of God or isolated natural occurrences.  New eco-critical approaches to the field, however, challenge the separation between human activity and environmental events.

In the fall of 2016, Paine College hosted the Frank Yerby Centennial Celebration and Evelyn Etheridge Conference on the Harlem Renaissance to celebrate Yerby's 100th birthday. Over the past few years, scholars such as Veronica Watson, Gene Andrew Jarrett, Stephanie Brown, and James C. Charles have provided much needed insight regarding Yerby's first novel The Foxes of Harrow (1946) and its follow up The Vixens (1947). This work adds to the scholarship of James L. Hill.

Transatlantic Gardens: Literary and Ecological Form in the Long 18th Century

Short form CFP:

This panel examines links between literary and ecological form across the Atlantic in the long eighteenth century. Formal experimentation is often taken as analogue for political critique, but in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, these critiques tend to be sited within specific locales.  What literary shifts are enabled or enforced by divergent ecological sites? What new perspectives on formal innovation become available when we view the plantation through the lens of the garden, and vice versa?

Send abstracts of 300 words to Kate McIntyre (krm2152@columbia.edu) and MC Hyland (mch454@nyu.edu) by September 30, 2017.
