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

updated: 
Thursday, January 15, 2009 - 9:15pm
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?

CFP: [Romantic] 2009 MLA Special Session: Keats, Aesthetics, History (25 Years on)

updated: 
Thursday, January 15, 2009 - 5:15pm
Jonathan Mulrooney

I include the official CFP for a proposed 2009 MLA Special Session on Keats below, but since the
MLA only gives 35 words let me say a few more here. The idea is to consider the question of
Keatsian aesthetics and Keatsian forms a quarter century or so after the advent of Romanticist New
Historicism (and 23 years after SiR's "Keats, Politics, and then some" issue of summer 1986). What I
am hoping for are not so much papers that situate Keats's poems historically as papers that
consider how the poems' forms and figures inaugurate, enact, shape, represent, transform or
aestheticize particular historiographical practices or ways of imagining "history."
