Transatlantic Girlhood in Nineteenth-Century Literature Collection
This CFP seeks work that examines the intersection of animal studies with contemporary ecopoetry from around the world. The human/nonhuman distinction entails an interdiction as much as establishes the safety of a boundary that maintains human hegemony in relation to other species. Yet, the animal can powerfully redirect attention toward the necessity of humility as well as deconstruct ideas of autonomy and superiority too often entangled with human self-understanding. This panel asks how the animal negates or reifies the human/nonhuman distinction, but also how the animal speaks, or is silenced, in contemporary ecopoetry. How does the animal appear as an ethical imperative in the age of the Anthropocene and of the Sixth Mass Extinction?

You are invited to submit proposals that explore this phenomenon. 250 word abstracts by 20 March 2018; Mail abstracts to Shoshana Knapp (firstname.lastname@example.org).
