deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 20, 2017

The interdisciplinary field of the environmental humanities offers new ways of considering tropical disasters.  Hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis and similar incidents were once thought to be acts of God or isolated natural occurrences.  New eco-critical approaches to the field, however, challenge the separation between human activity and environmental events.

Transatlantic Gardens: Literary and Ecological Form in the Long 18th Century

Monday, August 7, 2017 - 9:33am
Northeast Modern Language Association Convention (4/12-15/18)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

Short form CFP:

This panel examines links between literary and ecological form across the Atlantic in the long eighteenth century. Formal experimentation is often taken as analogue for political critique, but in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, these critiques tend to be sited within specific locales.  What literary shifts are enabled or enforced by divergent ecological sites? What new perspectives on formal innovation become available when we view the plantation through the lens of the garden, and vice versa?
