Critical Indigenous studies can neither be perceived as niche, nor trivialized as topical. In the way climate-capitalism has become an existential threat, a sincere engagement with Indigenous knowledges has become ineluctable. This conference seeks to initiate a multidisciplinary conversation on climate change, as conceived by, and re-inscribed within, Indigenous literatures. So far within the small domain of English Humanities, contemporary climate fiction by Indigenous authors have presented an urgent need to converse with scientific and social-scientific approaches to climate change.

This panel within the March 5-8 2020 NeMLA conference in Boston is dedicated to a discussion of the ways that religion intertwines with fiction in the work of Jorge Luis Borges.
Your presentation might consider one or several of the following questions:
How did Jorge Luis Borges draw from and transform different theological traditions in his fiction and poetry?
Are there interesting relationships between Borges's fictionalized theologies and literary theory? How do they correspond to his ideas about fiction?
Do different religious traditions respond to separate aspects of the author’s literary project, or do they overlap and combine? What functions to they serve?
WPU INTERDISCIPLINARY CONFERENCE: EXPLORING THE MACABRE, MALEVOLENT, and MYSTERIOUS
WILLIAM PEACE UNIVERSITY, RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA, USA
The WPU Interdisciplinary Conference seeks to advance collaborative and interconnective understanding on a variety of topics. With a sense of a renewed interest, or perhaps a more mainstreamed acceptance of, the horror genre in American culture, we thought it exciting for this annual conference to focus on an exploration of the macabre, malevolent, and mysterious. It is our hope that you will join us in bringing together knowledge from diverse disciplines to further the scholarship being done on the myriad of concepts falling within this theme.
