Jocasta: What is it like to be deprived of your country? Is it a great calamity?

Polynices: The greatest: the reality far surpasses the description.

Jocasta: What is its nature? What is hard for exiles?

Polynices: One thing is most important: no free speech.

Jocasta: a slave’s lot this is, not saying what you think.

Polynices: You must endure the follies of your ruler.

Jocasta: That too is hard, to join fools in their folly.

For humankind, energy production and consumption present a double-edged sword. On the one hand, we need energy to survive; on the other hand, the production of energy with current technology poses a threat to our very survival as it is not sustainable from a long-term perspective. The emerging, highly interdisciplinary field of energy humanities (Szeman and Boyer “The Rise of Energy Humanities”, 2014) responds to these concerns by viewing energy as a key factor in contemporary human (social, cultural, political) relations.

POSTINDUSTRIAL ENVIRONMENTS

This panel aims to explore the various literary spaces—both urban and organic—that define American literature after deindustrialization. How does the postindustrial economy remake the ways that people work in, live in, rely on, and relate to their built and natural environments? And how, in turn, do those new environmental dynamics reshape contemporary novels and poems?

Thoreau and Resistance 

What do Thoreau's writings offer contemporary modes of social and political resistance?  As we navigate an extended period of political crisis, what can we learn from Thoreau's complex responses to the national politics of his time? This panel will consider Thoreau's legacy for resistance movements with particular attention to the question of the relation between his political and natural history writings. Please send queries or one-page abstracts (for an 18-minute presentation) by January 15, 2018 to: kristen.case@maine.edu.
