This is a cfp for my panel, "Urban Pastoralism," at NeMLA's 2017 conference in Baltimore, MD from March 23rd to March 26th. Please see the following paragraphs for information on the panel as well as how to submit abstracts.
This panel for the next ASLE conference seeks to offer a range of explorations of environmental and ecological themes in comics and graphic novels. Whereas the conference’s “Rust/Resistance” special topic (http://www.asle.org/wp-content/uploads/ASLE-2017-CFP.pdf) should provide cohesion to the panel, papers that expand the study of comics and graphic novels from any environmental lens are also welcome. Among others, the panel will be concerned with several questions, such as: What particular forms of visualization do comics and graphic novels offer us as conduits to imagine the environment?

This panel invites papers that question and expand the critical discussion on the issue of realism in American detective fiction. Where does detective fiction fit within the tradition of American realism? To what extent does the detective story endorse, critique, or push back against the latter genre’s perceived conservatism? In what ways do realist detective fiction adhere to, or differ from, other genre fiction’s attempts at authenticity? How does the genre codify authenticity and how does the codification change historically? We seek presentations that touch on questions such as these as well as others that uncover novel aspects of realism in American detective fiction.

Abstract: 300 words
In his lifetime, Nietzsche referred to over 150 nineteenth-century writers in both his published writings and Nachlaß. Nietzsche’s use of nineteenth-century fiction and poetry ranges from somewhat nonchalant to extremely systematic. Indeed, the cornerstone of his “Advent of European Nihilism” in the late 1880s is the decline or decadence of literature during Nietzsche’s lifetime.
The panel attempts to focus on passages, individual novels or poems, and complete bodies of work in order to assess Nietzsche’s use of these texts in his philosophical project.
