ENERGIES: THROUGH THE MATERIAL, THEORETICAL & TEXTUAL

University of Southern California

Los Angeles, CA

March 28-29, 2014

Deadline for proposals: December 15, 2013

Keynote Speakers:
Fiction writer and essayist Roxane Gay (Eastern Illinois University) is the author most recently of An Untamed State (Atlantic/Grove) and Bad Feminist (Harper Perennial).
Scholar Ursula K. Heise (UCLA) is the author most recently of Sense of Place and Sense of Planet: The Environmental Imagination of the Global (Oxford University Press).

This conference will explore the many ways that systems of energy facilitate connection and exchange across borders and networks. As the world increasingly searches for new forms of sustainable and renewable power of all kinds, energies direct our lives on both macro and micro levels every day. In 2013, energy as an umbrella term relates not only to the technology that saturates our day-to-day existence — the forces that powers our cars, phones, computers — but also the invisible forces that connect us to each other, to nature, to the world around us and worlds beyond.
