[UPDATE] "Ecocritical Activisms and Activist Ecologies" NeMLA 2011 April 6-10, Rutgers University, NJ: Abstracts by 30 Sept.

updated: 
Sunday, September 19, 2010 - 12:28pm
42nd Annual Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)

Ecocriticism informs ecological activisms, and vice versa. What kind of change can the intersections and tensions between ecocriticism and activism bring about? While ecocriticism has become an increasingly popular field of inquiry, its positionality remains an issue for negotiation. From Rachel Carson's Silent Spring (1962), which continues to influence mass eco-activisms, to the anti-GMO groups that shape discussions of bioethics, ecocriticism remains in dialogue with practical approaches in what Lawrence Buell has termed a "spirit of commitment to environmentalist praxis" (The Environmental Imagination, 1995). Moreover, current ecocritical scholarship underscores a general distrust of the romanticizing rhetoric of early ecocriticism.
