Transgender Studies, Ecology, and the Environmental Humanities Panel at MLA 2016, January 7-10

updated: 
Monday, February 9, 2015 - 8:33am
Association for the Study of Literature and Environment

For this panel, organized by the Association for the Study of Literature and Environment, we invite proposals for papers that place transgender studies and the environmental humanities into critical conversation, thus attending to existing gaps in scholarship when it comes to the relationships among "trans(gender)," "ecology," and "environment." For example, while materialist ecocriticism has shown concern for trans phenomena, such as the "trans-corporeality" discussed by Stacy Alaimo, that work has tended to reject the linguistic and discursive turns that have been so important to transgender scholarship and activism.
