Modernism often gets a bad rap from defenders of the natural environment: in its connections to industrial modernity, the machine age, and urbanization, its aesthetic projects are often seen in opposition to sustainable ecological practice. This panel aims to complicate such binaries by considering twentieth-century representations of and narratives about the built environment, particularly those that see possibilities for alliances between such constructed spaces and the biotic, nonhuman world. How do built environments force us to re-imagine the spaces of modernity in ways that undo such oppositions as nature/culture, organic/mechanical, green space/brown space?

[DEADLINE EXTENDED]In her 2008 Massey Lectures, Margaret Atwood calls debt "that peculiar nexus where money, narrative or story, and religious belief intersect, often with explosive force." Today, we are facing an explosion of discourses foregrounding financial debt. Whether in the Euro Zone Debt Crisis, the Occupy Wall Street Movement, or rising student loan debt, narrative and debt cannot be decoupled, nor can they be detached from a given political or affective investment. In addition to the obvious economic concerns, we are also interested in widening the discussion of debt: How do literature and cultural products help us make sense of these issues?
