Queer Ecology
ASLE panel at MLA (6-9 Jan. 2011 in L.A.)

Proposals are invited for presentations that explore the relationship between ecocriticism and queer theory. How do ecocriticism and queer theory mutually reinforce and/or challenge each other? What underlying assumptions in ecocritical theory are called into question by queer theory, and vice versa? What does it look like to "queer" ecocriticism? What does it look like to "green" queer theory? What is the relationship between queer ecology and ecofeminism?

How do particular literary texts illustrate or dramatize answers to these questions? How do literary texts express a "queer ecology"? Paper proposals may address any or a combination of these questions.

Moving Type: Consequence in Cultural Production

updated: 
Monday, January 4, 2010 - 12:10pm
Free Exchange Conference English Department, University of Calgary

The Free Exchange Graduate Student Conference at the University of Calgary seeks abstracts for papers for our forthcoming conference on the roles of type in cultural production. We are most interested in work that engages with the topic of this multi-disciplinary conference in original ways, from material print culture to identity politics; from examinations of migration to site-specific textual analysis. Whether questioning existing methods of literary production or engaging with the gender/genre dynamics of cultural production, we embrace vigorous research on the complicated life, mobility, and circulation of text.
