Women Writing Nature: A Feminist View

Rachel Carson, writer, scientist, and ecologist, became famous as a naturalist and science writer for the public. Embedded in her early works was the view that human beings were but one part of nature distinguished primarily by their power to alter it, in some cases irreversibly. With the 1962 publication of Silent Spring, she challenged the practices of agricultural scientists and the government, and called for a change in the way humankind viewed the natural world. (Rachel

This year, I am accepting paper proposals for several panels on early modern literature to be delivered at the Thirty-Seventh Annual CEA Conference on Reading the Regions / Writing the Regions / Teaching the Regions to be held from 6-8 April 2006.
Papers are especially welcome that deal with ways in which early modern writers dismantled, elaborated, heightened, or constructed ideas of regional identity. Topics that are particularly welcome might address:
intersections between gendered self-fashioning and regional identity
imagined regions (utopias, fantasies, romances)
liminal regions
ecocritical perspectives on place and region
geography and identity
domestic "regions"

    While 18th and 19th century women were usually confined to the domestic

unexplored territories: their journeys to the Orient (Lady Montagu, Lady
Blunt, Gertrude Bell, Amelia Edwards, Freya Stark), to India (Emily Eden,
Fanny Parks), to America (Isabella Bird, Clara Bromley, France Trollope), to
Africa (Mary Kingsley) or to Australia (Daisy Bates) gave rise to

Long, Mark

The Association for the Study of Literature and the Environment will
co-sponsor a session on mobility and place at the Northeast Modern
Language Association Convention Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The dates
for the convention are March 2-5, 2006.


Mobility and Place in North American Environmental Writing


In what ways has unsettling or restlessness been used to construct a
sense of place? Place-based environmental thought is predicated upon the
idea of rootedness. This session seeks papers that speak to movement, to
learning more than one place, to perambulatory or migratory knowledge or
ways of knowing, and their distinctive types of intimacy, memory,
