Louisiana State University English Graduate Student Association

Individuals from around the globe travel to Louisiana early in the year to participate in Mardi Gras celebrations. Masks, costumes and reverie encourage participants to shed certain prefigured aspects of identity in order to become something new. Much of the excitement these traditions allow is rooted in the idea that one can undergo a personal, transformative experience by relinquishing a prefigured sense of self.

Everyone – politicians, Disney films, pop songs, our therapists, friends and professors – keep telling us things will turn out alright, while almost every scientific report and every other news article we read counters that notion. Political activists are encouraged to affect change with smiles on their faces and cancer patients are asked to "fight" their disease with positive thinking. Obama's promises of hope and change spoke to the fears and desires of many, even though his campaign poster showed him looking in no specific direction at all. Everywhere we encounter the elusive message that we all share some common goal and that we're all in the same boat.

Natures 2015: Reading the Books of Nature
Authors and artists, from Galileo to Rousseau, Woolfe to Kingsolver, Attenborough to Cousteau, have been exploring how to read or record nature for thousands of years. We seek papers that continue this quest in the context of any genre, time period, or discipline within the humanities. Topics may include, but are not limited to:
• A particular character's or author's way or reading or misreading nature, speaking to or speaking against nature.
• Representations of nature as pitifully silenced victim, ominously silent threat, or speaking agent.
• Linking or de-linking nature with books, reading, or writing.
• The 'book of nature' as a parallel to, or competitor with, sacred texts.
