Dear Colleagues,

Submissions are currently being accepted for an anthology of Appalachian ecocriticism. The Appalachian region has largely been underrepresented in ecocritical studies, and this unique volume will represent Appalachian literature and its environment to the community of ecocritics and, more broadly, the scholarly community as a whole.

Critical investigations into the ways in which Appalachian nature are portrayed in text is, of course, the central theme of the volume. However, additional intersections may include, but are not limited to, the following:

-Accessibility/Disability and the environment

-Animal studies

-Mountaintop removal

-Significance of water/Water quality

-Fracking

The Poetics of Mapping: Representing the Built Environment 
University of Pennsylvania 
April 20-21, 2017 

This graduate student conference is conceived as an opportunity to think more broadly about the ways that poetry shapes and is shaped by the environment in which it exists and the way qualitative visual representations of cities are shaped by non-narrative usages of language. It seeks to bring graduate students in city planning and the larger social sciences together with students who are putting poetry into conversation with spatial forms.
