In times of rapid and unprecedented global sociocultural change, urgent calls are being made for salient educational responses to current global and digital challenges.

“Environment at the Margins” and Global Anglophone/Postcolonial African Novels-ASLE Panel

updated: 
Wednesday, October 10, 2018 - 3:51pm
Oklahoma State University
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, December 10, 2018

Byron Caminero-Santangelo and Garth A. Myers describe peripheral African environments as “Environment at the Margins” in the book of the same title. The field of postcolonial ecocriticism, which has been flourishing over the past one decade, is now widely perceived to be an interdisciplinary, transnational, and comparative field of inquiry as it recognizes the complexities of interdisciplinary dialogues and critiques a universalizing or homogenizing impulse of capitalism, colonialism, and imperialism.

For this ASLE 2019 panel, we invite papers that explore the intersections of environmental thinking and experimentation. From Thomas Moore’s "Utopia" (1516) to Charles Darwin’s studies on the Galápagos in the nineteenth century, places such as islands, as well as human and nonhuman bodies, have been figured as sites of aesthetic, political, and scientific experimentation.

American Genocide: Indians & Other Animals (essays & poetry; edited volume)

Wednesday, October 10, 2018 - 3:40pm
Dr. Thomas C. Gannon and Matt Guzman

Saturday, December 15, 2018

Critical scholarship on the indigenous humans of North America and scholarship in Critical Animal Studies often remain separate and rarely appear in dialogue with one another. And yet, both fields of study can benefit greatly from being placed in conversation. There has not been a volume to date that adequately grapples with the similar exploitation and extinction of these two marginalized “Others.” The crucial intersection of the human indigenous and other non-human species entails both trope and reality, as both a longtime ideological comedy of errors and misprisions—and a longtime material tragedy of genocide and extinction.
