Merwin Studies seeks to organize a panel at the ASLE Biennial Conference—Notes From Underground: The Depths of Environmental Arts, Culture, and Justice—in Moscow, Idaho, June 23–27, 2015.

The conference theme invites us to consider how looking "down, under, beneath and below" can lead to "imaginative, aesthetic, critical, pedagogical, and activist responses."

Many of the suggested topics readily resonate with Merwin's ecopoetics including geological time, soil biopolitics, gardening, roots, reclaiming, insects, witness, mycorrhizal networks, migrations, poetics of darkness (roots, mud, night), and grassroots politics and cultures.

Duquesne University English Graduate Organization

Inspired by our era of globalization and instantaneous communication, the Duquesne University English Department Graduate Student Conference is asking about access. As the rise of Disability Studies and Mobility Studies has provided theoretical and linguistic frameworks for defining, explaining, and challenging traditional conceptions of access, we invite considerations that historicize the concept of access and probe its contemporary resonance. Historically, who has had access? How does asking this question raise awareness of contentious spaces? How do we navigate such spaces without privileging able-bodiedness?

"Rebecca West and Dissent: The Politics and Poetics of Heresy"

Rebecca West famously did not toe lines, whether these lines were associated with party, ideology, literary movement, genre, gender, religious beliefs, etc. In most cases, from her leftist anti-communism, to her bourgeois leftism, to her paradoxical feminism, to her anti-atonement Christianity, to her genre-bending, West was a dissenter, a rebel, and a heretic—even within movements that were already oppositional such as feminism.

Women Writing North: ACCUTE 2015 *Deadline Extended*

ACCUTE

It is common to conceive of Canada's North, especially in its early history, as a barren frontier conquerable only by the hardiest of men. However, as Barbara Kelcey's Alone in Silence: European Women in the Canadian North Before 1940 outlines, an estimated five hundred women or more traversed the Northwest Territories before World War II. While some of these women were the wives of missionaries or explorers, others were career-women in their own rights—artists, nurses, missionaries, entrepreneurs, or explorers.

Call for Responses for Front Page Survey Question on Technoculture

The MediaCommons Front Page Collective welcomes responses to the survey question: How does the lens of technoculture shade our perceptions of ourselves and society?

This survey question seeks to explore how the prevalence of technology in our lives has shaped the ways in which we approach not only communication, but also representations of the fractured nature of our identities. Some questions that arise may include: How are our experiences with other cultures filtered through topics like Techno-Orientalism? How do works of science fiction invite us to consider cultural issues in new ways? What new affordances do mobile devices give us? How do mobile devices constrain the domain of self-expression?
