NEMLA 2015: Urban Ecology and the Postcolonial Global Subject

updated: 
Wednesday, September 24, 2014 - 1:36pm
full name / name of organization: 
Vivek Freitas, Tufts University
contact email: 

This panel considers the specific role of urban environments in imagining postcolonial subjects' relationship to the world. How and why do cities function as the locus for a cosmopolitan identity, while villages remain the bearers of tradition? How have discourses of globalization and environmental justice changed considerations of postcolonial subjectivity and environments in our century? What literary innovations have helped represent the sedimented historical landscapes of colonialism, global capitalism, and histories of devastation?

Science and/of the Word: Alter-humanisms in Caribbean Poetry and Philosophy

This session proposes to explore and assess the contributions of Caribbean poets and philosophers both to the postcolonial/ecocritical/feminist/queer polemics against Enlightenment modernity and (neo)liberal humanism and to the invention of alternative modes of being, thinking, and figuring the human. We welcome papers which engage the artistic and intellectual productions of Caribbean writers in the broad context of post-, anti-, and alter-humanisms. How do Caribbean texts unsettle and (re)invent relations between the Sciences & the Humanities?

Food and Sustainability: Towards a Culinary Ecology, NeMLA April 2015

full name / name of organization:

contact email: 

Interest in the fields of food and sustainability studies within the humanities is rapidly growing, in part due to their ability to investigate our perceived relationship with ecology. Food is a text that conveys identity, reflecting historically grounded or socially constructed attitudes through what is produced and consumed, both gastronomic and printed. Likewise, the connection between nature and culture as manifested in narratives allow us to recognize the discourse and disconnect between society and our environment, marking us through this relationship. Central to both fields is the interplay of humanity and environment, depicted in rural and urban ecologies, e.g. food deserts versus urban food jungles.
