Nature Writing’s Future Pasts

Land Lines: British Nature Writing 1789-2014 (AHRC Project)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, December 1, 2018

British nature writing can be understood as both a product of and a challenge to a western-style modernity that has created the conditions for its own unravelling. The tense that best captures these conditions is the future anterior. Scottish writer Kathleen Jamie, wandering through Bergen’s Natural History Museum, marvels at the ‘decaying bones of twenty-four cetacean skeletons crowded under the ceiling’. One whale skeleton alone, that of a gigantic blue, is ‘less an animal, more a narrative’. The different cetacean narratives add up to a devastating commentary to which even words such as ‘waste’ and ‘slaughter’ and ‘holocaust’ and ‘shame’ cannot do full justice.

Medical Humanism / American Literature

CFP for American Literature Association (ALA) 30th Annual Conference

May 23-26, 2019, Boston, MA

Given the ongoing healthcare crisis in America—soaring costs, physician shortages, and lack of insurance coverage—and the rising interest in the field of health humanities, I seek projects that illuminate American literature’s contribution to medical humanism. More specifically, I am interested in papers that address how American literature can help us revision our view of the body, health, illness, disease, medical education, and/or the healthcare system.
