Gillian Dooley and Nick Turner, the editors of 'Writers in Conversation', an international open-access online literary journal, are seeking interviews with writers of all kinds.

Interviews provide an opportunity for engagement between writers and critics/literary scholars and help ground literary criticism and theory in the reality of creative practice. They are of interest not only to literary and creative writing scholars, but also to many other readers. 'Writers in Conversation' contributes to the resources available to researchers internationally and to the development of a creative and engaged critical community.

"Beneath these Pooled Waters: Damming in Literature, Film, and Culture" Panel proposal for the ASLE Eleventh Biennial Conference

This panel--to be held at ASLE's biennial conference, June 23-27, 2015 at the University of Idaho, in Moscow, ID--will mine the conference theme of "Notes from the Underground: the Depths of Environmental Arts, Culture, and Justice," as it explores the planning, design, and implementation of dams, as well as their aftermath. While damming in the United States proliferated during the mid-twentieth century, dams are now generally understood as ecologically and culturally harmful. In light of our contemporary understanding of dams, this panel seeks to drudge up what has been silenced by the floodwaters.

We find ourselves in a world where economic logic rules the day. Caught within the rationality of neoliberalism, those of us who contest austerity, privatization, and the concomitant militarization of civil society are often left to counter them through vague logics of redistribution which take as given the very systems of accounting which we seek to undermine.
