"Going Green from the Black Perspective: The Significance of Environmental Issues in the Black Community" is a one-day conference devoted to exploring the various ways Black activists, scholars, agriculturalists, and politicians have been (and are) currently responding to environmental issues within communities of color.

Coded: Comics and Containment Culture in the 1950's
Following recent literary historians who have argued for a "geographically wider, historically longer, and more morphologically diverse" history of the novel, this panel will consider the eighteenth-century British novel in the context of romance, a genre organized by translation and formal variety. What does the "novel" look like if we adopt the heuristic of "romance" and its long, transnational, and less modern contexts?

This seminar proposes to explore the aesthetic effects of early media--understood as "discourse networks," or channels of communication--by unsettling the idea of media itself. What might it mean to see media as medium, mediation, an in-between state, something mixed, or hybrid? Rather than seeing media history as a march of technological innovation, critics now describe emergent and residual media; they look to media in transition, overlapping media, co-existing visions of the retrograde and the futuristic. The idea of "media aesthetics" itself suggests porous boundaries between works of art and means of communication.
