  Southwest Graduate English Symposium – 2007
   
  Only Human?: Medical Biology vs. The Social Model of Disability
   
  In her 1999 book Female Forms, Carol Thomas suggests that disability studies and activism would benefit from a social model approach to definitions of disability, as opposed to the long-standing contention that disability, impairment, and its effects are biological, physiological, anatomical—in short, medical.

  Off the Map: Ecocriticism Beyond Borders

"Ecological thinking about literature requires us to take the nonhuman
world as seriously as previous modes of criticism have taken the human realm of society and culture. That, it seems to me, is ecocriticism's greatest challenge and its greatest opportunity."
- Glen A. Love, "Ecocriticism and Science"

Panel proposal for the upcoming conference of the Association for the Study of
Literature and Environment at Wofford College in Spartanburg, South Carolina,
June 12-16, 2007:

African Americans and the Environment

As ecocriticism continues to expand its borders from the study of traditional
nature writing, so too must the perception of the American “nature experience”
extend beyond what has largely been a white pastime. This panel will consider
literary representations of African Americans and nature by black and white
writers, pre- and post-Civil War, which engage issues of ecological ethics,
environmental justice and activism, agriculture, gardening, and beyond.
