Environmental disciplines have recently gained prominence due to the potentially devastating consequences of climate change: increasing natural disasters, the greenhouse effect, temperature variations, changing sea levels, etc. Such issues have raised awareness on the necessity for a drastic change in thinking. Ecocriticism—along with other green disciplines dealing with the relationship between society and the environment—places nature as the center of the intellectual debate. As Kate Rigby states, "culture constructs the prism through which we know nature." Reading Nature Conference aims to explore from a critical perspective how such a prism is constructed.

The 2012 LASA Congress will be dedicated to the bicentennial of national independence in most of the countries in Latin America. The aim of this panel is to generate a forum of discussion and theoretical intervention between and within musical discourse and questions of identity. How does music and its components, such as sounds and silences, promote or interfere with the creation of "national unities"? Are "samba", "tango" and "salsa" inclusive genres of collective identities? And if this is the case, what kinds of dissonances should we consider in order to gain a more profound understanding of these acoustic events?
