REMINDER: NEMLA 2018: Reading and Writing the Body in the Anthropocene

Two trends in ecocritical approaches to narrative form the basis of this proposed session on Reading & Writing the Body in the Anthropocene. The first is the proliferation of the term Anthropocene itself, which not only attempts to name an epoch but also seems to have become a kind of shorthand for a constellation of political, social, scientific and economic concerns related to our understanding of human impact on the environment. The second trend is the so-called “material turn” in the environmental humanities, a shift that, as Serenella Iovino and Serpil Oppermann observe, has brought “increasing attention” to the imbrications of meaning, narrative and material realities in the larger conversation on literature and the environment (Iovino 550).

After Europrovincial Theory: New Directions, New Formations

Thursday, September 21, 2017

In After Theory, Terry Eagleton writes: “Theory is general, culture specific.” If we read this assessment along with contemporary proclamations of the irrelevance of theory in reading literature, a few assumptions about what is and isn’t considered to be theory come into view. If the interruptions of culture mean death for theory as generalization, how does that immediately mean death of theory tout court? The epistemic scandal (Rey Chow, 2006) behind this melancholic gesture betrays a provincialism of Eurocentric theory.
