"Energy and Infrastructure: An Environmental Humanities Roundtable" (MLA 2021)
Jacob Goessling, Jordan B. Kinder, and Andrew B. Ross
A non-guaranteed roundtable organized by the Association for the Study of Literature and Environment
In 2016 Oxford Dictionaries named ”Post-truth” as the international word of the year, but as Lee McIntyre argues in his book Post-Truth (MIT, 2018), the concept of post-truth is not a new one, as he cites the vociferous arguments made against the cancer causing effects of cigarettes, the assault on vaccinations, and other significant moments of push-back that have occurred when the facts will out.
However, in the 2010s the omnipresent nature of post-truth arguments has accelerated and is now an omnipresent part of our lives (on international, national, regional, and communal scales).
The theatre, as one might imagine, has noticed and has responded.

Surely the wake left behind by mankind’s forward march reveals its movement just as clearly as the spray thrown up elsewhere by the prow.
– Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
Few would dispute the validity of Teilhard’s analogy itself: a society is defined as much by what it rejects as what it values. What we might question is the very forwardness of the march he imagines. Moreover, would an exhibit of what any given society has “left behind” constitute a tribute or a condemnation?
The Spanish I (Peninsular Literature before 1700) permanent section of the Midwest Modern Language Association seeks proposals for the upcoming MMLA Conference in Milwaukee, Wisconsin (November 5-8, 2020).
