Ecofeminist theory continues to grow as environmental issues move more
into the spotlight. What this panel seeks is papers that explore
ecofeminism's presence in American literature. Why is it useful as a
tool of literary criticism? What does ecofeminist theory offer that
other theories do not? This panel is open to all time periods of
American literature and welcomes discussions of any authors. It also
welcomes discussions that explore not only the environmental aspect of
ecofeminism but also apects of race, class, gender, globalization,
sexuality etc. Abstracts of 250-500 words are due by September 15 to
