Environment is a fluid, elastic word. After combing the lengthy list of the many meanings of environment in a trusty Merriam Webster dictionary, one arrives at the French roots of the term: that which surrounds. The Graduate Student Association of the American Culture Studies Program at Bowling Green State University invites scholars to an interdisciplinary symposium focused on exploring the multilayered meanings of the term environment using the broadest definition of the term as a common ground for meeting and commingling.

Language has always played a key role in the shaping and sharing of identities. Not only does it have the power to create community among people coming from different geographical locations, but most importantly it influences the way we perceive and make sense of the world. For these reasons, the use of language in science fiction —a genre that offers a critical space for "registering tensions related to the defining of national identity and the modernization process" (Ferreira, 2011)— is important as it enables readers to explore alternative realities. This could also be said about speculative fiction. Thus, this panel addresses concerns over reinvented identities through science fiction and across historical periods.
