CFP: [Gender Studies] Women of Color Writers and Environmental Justice Literature (RMMLA 2009)

updated: 
Thursday, January 15, 2009 - 9:16pm
Andrea Campbell

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?
