This panel seeks papers about any aspect of Early Modern Drama and Ecocriticism. Presenters are welcome to address the SAMLA 89 theme, as well as themes important to the study of Early Modern drama and Ecocriticism (i.e. nature, ecology, anthropocentrism, recycling, and sustainability). Responses to some of the following boundary transgressions in popular culture are particularly encouraged: How does Early Modern drama alert audiences to the materiality and interconnectivity of human subjectivity? How do the storms, anatomy lessons, catalogues of plants and animals, and forests in the old plays we read inform the contemporary climate crisis? How does Early Modern drama complicate the “anthropo” of the Anthropocene?

The MENA Design Research Center <https://www.menadrc.org/> is pleased to host an interdisciplinary conference that focuses on the value of critical theory to design, arts, social sciences, and media. The conference aims to encourage interdisciplinary engagement that brings together academics and practitioners to share knowledge on how critical theory encourages social change by challenging assumptions about the status quo.
This panel will explore themes and representational strategies of 9/11 and/or the apocalypse in post-9/11 literature and culture (movies, television, painting, music, etc.).
Questions to consider include but are not limited to:
How do artists (broadly conceived) try to capture the singularity of 9/11 as a world historical event? Alternatively, how and why do they resist notions of singularity, protesting the idea that it was a day after which “everything changed” forever?
How has this historical moment altered our conceptions either human nature or of ecological systems more generally?
How has Islamophobia been encoded in grotesque representations of the Other?
