What do we want? A better world? A cleaner world? At this point, many of us might merely settle for a world that isn’t barrelling towards inevitable environmental destruction. So, what do we want? Climate Action! What does climate action look like in the academy? It looks like the expansion of digital resources and the cultivation of better disposal and recycling habits on university campuses. It also looks like the cultivation of eco-critical theory and research. Earth is our home. It is the only habitable planet for us. Unfortunately, while it shows evidence of the brilliance of humanity, the state of the Earth also represents our greed and short-sightedness.

(Im)possibility marks a limit of available information, a threshold of representation, a cessation of action. Thinking at the limits of the possible gives rise to a specific set of issues: how might we articulate that which cannot be said? How might we orient ourselves toward that for which no available theory or representation is adequate?

Disability in Dramatic Texts and Performance
Papers are sought for a special panel series on the subject of disability in dramatic texts and performance. We invite research utilizing Disability Studies in any dramatic period. Panels will showcase discussions on representation, image, symbolism, societal regulation or construction of disability, casting, and depictions of the disabled in playtexts and dramatic performance.
CEAMAG Journal, the peer-reviewed journal of the College English Association-Middle Atlantic Group, appears once a year and publishes studies based on writing research, discussions of pedagogy, literary criticism, cultural criticism, and personal essays concerned with the teaching of English. We will also consider for publication book reviews and poems and short fiction related to literature or teaching.
