MLA BOSTON 2013-The Renaissance Anthropocene: Imagining Life Without Nature in Early Modern Literature-DEADLINE MARCH 14

full name / name of organization: 
Justin Kolb, Oberlin College
contact email: 
justinbarneskolb@gmail.com

Coined by environmental scientists to describe the current geological epoch, "Anthropocene" denotes an age in which human action has pervasively and irreversibly transformed the land, sea, and atmosphere of the Earth, creating an ecology in which nature cannot be disentangled from artifice.

This concept existed in the minds of early modern writers under other names, especially "the decay of nature," as they imagined a world in which technologies ranging from alchemy to poetics might improve, degrade, or outright replace natural processes.
