Merwin Studies seeks to organize a panel at the ASLE Biennial Conference—Notes From Underground: The Depths of Environmental Arts, Culture, and Justice—in Moscow, Idaho, June 23–27, 2015.

The conference theme invites us to consider how looking "down, under, beneath and below" can lead to "imaginative, aesthetic, critical, pedagogical, and activist responses."

Many of the suggested topics readily resonate with Merwin's ecopoetics including geological time, soil biopolitics, gardening, roots, reclaiming, insects, witness, mycorrhizal networks, migrations, poetics of darkness (roots, mud, night), and grassroots politics and cultures.

[UPDATE] Access: Redefining Disability and Mobility Studies (March 20-21, 2015)

full name / name of organization: 
Duquesne University English Graduate Organization

Inspired by our era of globalization and instantaneous communication, the Duquesne University English Department Graduate Student Conference is asking about access. As the rise of Disability Studies and Mobility Studies has provided theoretical and linguistic frameworks for defining, explaining, and challenging traditional conceptions of access, we invite considerations that historicize the concept of access and probe its contemporary resonance. Historically, who has had access? How does asking this question raise awareness of contentious spaces? How do we navigate such spaces without privileging able-bodiedness?

[UPDATE - DEADLINE EXTENDED] Ecology, System, Empire (NAVSA 2015)

updated: 
Monday, November 3, 2014 - 8:45am
full name / name of organization: 
Nathan K. Hensley and Philip Steer

The cataclysmic fact of global warming has brought to the fore notions of interconnection, supraindividual agency, and transhuman timescales, challenging scholarship to ask how systems, ecological networks, and even entire worlds might be conceived within a single frame. In Victorian Studies this presents itself as a problem of critical scale—what are the temporal and geographic boundaries of "the Victorian"?—and aesthetic form: how to represent an ecosystem, where no single phenomenon can be abstracted from a system of mutual dependence?
