Critical Identities: Finding and Expressing Critical Identities in Humanities Scholarship [10/15/12;2/15/13]

full name / name of organization: 
Natures 2013 hosted by La Sierra University (Riverside, California USA)
contact email: 
gradengl@lasierra.edu

Have you tied the knot yet? Or are you still playing the field? Are you a committed feminist, poststructuralist, or ecocritic? Or do you pick up a critical perspective for one project and then using another for the next? Do you still fondly cling to your first love of close reading?

Papers are solicited for this one-day conference that either demonstrate critical identities in action (e.g. a feminist reading of Moby Dick) and/or interrogate the process by which critical identities are found (e.g. how I came to realize that I was a feminist while studying Moby Dick). While the organizers are particularly interested in papers with an environmental focus, submissions from any critical perspective and from any field in the humanities are encouraged. Interdisciplinary papers, hybrid criticism (e.g. ecofeminism), and pre-formed panels are welcomed.
