These days the word "craft" gets attached to a lot—from cocktails to crochet, 3D printing to upcycled t-shirts, handmade paper to handmade pickles. And this trend only appears to be growing as craft is closely connected to the DIY movement: a wide-ranging, ever-expanding, and sometimes controversial field of work and play.

Once a traditional theme of eighteenth-century studies, the study of "Nature" is re-emerging in the light of recent developments in ecocriticism. This period (1600-1820) saw the radical redefinition of "humanity" and of the human place in the environment, the establishment of scientific empiricism and a subject-object relationship between human observer and the natural world, and the exponential growth of urbanisation, with its concomitant growth in landscape aestheticism and environmental philosophy.

[UPDATE] (NeMLA panel; due Sept. 30) "The Moment Made Eternal": At The Intersection of Photography and Poetry

NeMLA 2015 - Toronto

Writing about Alfred Stieglitz's photography in 1923, Hart Crane said, "Speed is at the bottom of it all. The hundredth of a second caught so precisely that the motion is continued from the picture indefinitely: the moment made eternal" (qtd. in Sontag's On Photography 65). A thoroughly modern art form, photography reflects the sense of urgency and impulse to record found often in poetry. As discrete units of artistic representation, the photographic image and the poem unveil new ways of looking and interpreting. Both art forms seek to represent that moment, that impression attempting to make the moment eternal, in the image and in the text.

How have new technologies transformed literary and cultural histories? How do they enable critical practices of scholars working in and outside of digital humanities? Have decades of digital studies enhanced, altered, or muted the project to recover and represent more diverse histories of writers, thinkers, and artists positioned differently by gender, race, ethnicity, sexualities, social class and/or global location?
