Merwin Studies seeks to organize a panel at the ASLE Biennial Conference—Notes From Underground: The Depths of Environmental Arts, Culture, and Justice—in Moscow, Idaho, June 23–27, 2015.

The conference theme invites us to consider how looking "down, under, beneath and below" can lead to "imaginative, aesthetic, critical, pedagogical, and activist responses."

Many of the suggested topics readily resonate with Merwin's ecopoetics including geological time, soil biopolitics, gardening, roots, reclaiming, insects, witness, mycorrhizal networks, migrations, poetics of darkness (roots, mud, night), and grassroots politics and cultures.
