American Literature in the World Graduate Conference, Yale University, April 6, 2018

updated: 
Monday, September 25, 2017 - 4:29pm
Yale University, Department of English
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 15, 2017

The conference hopes to broaden the scope of American literature, opening it to more complex geographies, and to a variety of genres and media. The impetus comes partly from a survey of what is currently in the field: it is impossible to read the work of Toni Morrison and Junot Díaz, Yusef Komunyakaa and Carolyn Forché, Tony Kushner and Lynn Nottage without seeing that, for all these authors, the reference frame is no longer simply the United States, but a larger, looser, more contextually varied set of coordinates, populated by laboring bodies, migrating faiths, generational sagas, memories of war, as well as the accents of unforgotten tongues, the taste and smell of beloved foods and spices.

Ecofictions and Ecorealities of Latin America and the Hispanic/Latino- a/Latinx Worlds

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, November 20, 2017

We invite contributions to an edited volume on comparative ecocritical studies of Latin American writing, film visual art, and performance that address the topic of ecological violence. How do writers, filmmakers, visual, performance artists, and practitioners of other forms of material culture conceptualize, visualize, and describe ecological vulnerability and insecurity? What are their strategies to convey the acts of violence on the environment that, as Rob Nixon explains in his definition of “slow violence”, are all too often invisible because they are “dispersed across time and space”? Which forms of expression are chosen, alongside and beyond conventional genres, to help apprehend ecological destruction and threats?
