Following the success of the Fall Narratives project in 2014, this workshop will explore the theme of fallen animals. The serpent in the Garden of Eden is but one example of the ambivalence which has characterized the human-animal relationship over the centuries, both across, and within, cultures, societies and traditions. With publications such as Anat Pick's Creaturely Poetics (2011), the field of post-anthropocentrism studies has in recent years become particularly vibrant and attracts scholarly attention from a variety of disciplines. We welcome proposals with research interest in fields such as, but not limited to, literature, religion, languages, history, philosophy, psychology, art, film and visual culture, cultural studies and economics.

We are looking forward to submissions with an interdisciplinary scope as well as readings and theoretical underpinnings ranging from history, sociology and anthropology to political science, media studies all based within gender studies. Possible topics may include:

What does social healing look like in its most effective manifestations? How are we responding to the violence(s) and systemic oppression(s) that pervade our communities? How have we and how can we continue to attend to the real needs and social ills of all our respective communities? What strategies affect revolutionary positive healing? In what ways are social healers resisting, confronting, and/or transforming community healing? Our questions are inspired by the Caribbean novelist, scholar, and social activist, Dr. Erna Brodber.
