An academic publisher is interested in a collection of essays about
ethical criticism. As the editor, I envision the book having several
thematic centers: the responsibilities of readers, the obligations of
writers, the legacy of Wayne Booth, connections to disciplines other than
literary criticism (history, law, philosophy, religion), narrative theory
and ethical theory, and postmodernism and the ethics of reading. Please
contact me about providing a proposal for a chapter.

Reel borders: Transnational Cinema in the 21st Century
UConn will host a one-day film seminar in conjunction with the Reel
Ireland Film Festival on Saturday, April 5, 2008. The theme will be
Transnational Cinemas. As technological developments and economic and
social globalization come to the forefront of contemporary cultural
studies, the concept of the transnational artist becomes increasingly
more important. Themes that will be considered include but are not
limited to how nationalism is strengthened or weakened in the face of
such globalization, literary adaptations to film, identifying a (trans)
national audience, Diasporic film, hyphenated identities and cross-
cultural production.

   After America’s independence severed ties with England, America no

numerous nationalities. For the displaced British loyalist who no longer
lives in Britain’s colony or belongs in British culture, creating an
American identity presents a problem for the former subject. The subject
views him or herself as a British subject rather than an American which
creates a state of ambivalence. America, the ‘melting pot,’ questions and
forms its identity due to the diversity of people migrating to the

Theorizing Ecocriticism

MLA 2008 in San Francisco
Panel sponsored by the Association for the Study of Literature and Environment

Since its origins a few short decades ago, a number of scholars have
challenged ecocriticism as being under-theorized. For instance, Dana
Phillips has called for greater theoretical sophistication in environmental
studies and ecocriticism, demanding that they become truly
interdisciplinary and less reverential; Simon C. Estok insists that
ecocritics should define the field of inquiry and take on theory instead of
turning from it.
