This proposed special session will examine the events, geographies, temporalities, and genres of Global Climate Change. In the wake of 5th Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), this session will ask how the technical language of risk assessment—"exceptionally unlikely" to "virtually certain"—is narrated in different media to capture the unfolding and impending harm to humans and non-humans?; how can the imperatives of global social justice be addressed alongside pressing environmental crises?; what frameworks might address the uneven geographic distribution of harms and articulate the incremental yet inevitable pace of sea-level rise, desertification, and biodiversity loss?

In her afterword to Postcolonial Green, "Postcolonial Ecocriticism and the Question of Literature," Ursula K. Heise writes, "In the convergence of ecocriticism and postcolonialism...this question of the aesthetic arises with double force. If we believe—as I assume most ecocritical and postcolonial critics do—that the aesthetic transformation of the real has a particular potential for reshaping the individual and collective ecosocial imaginary, then the way in which aesthetic forms relate to cultural as well as biological structures deserves our particular attention" (258).

[UPDATE] March 12, 2014 "Not an Exit but a Shift: Changing Children's Literature" (MLA 2015; Vancouver, BC)

Wednesday, February 26, 2014 - 1:17pm
full name / name of organization: 
Modern Language Association

In her 1998 article "Exit Children's Literature?" Maria Nikolajeva meditates on contemporary trends in the children's genre and closes with the statement that "we must acknowledge that, sooner or later, children's literature will be integrated into the mainstream and disappear." This panel responds to the question of her title, but it focuses less on the idea of a disappearance or death, and more on a reimagining of the children's genre. With this in mind, we invite papers that address the ways turn-of-the-twenty-first-century children's texts have shifted to accommodate and reflect a contemporary childhood through changes in aesthetics, mediums, genres, and/or ideologies.
