Panel Proposal | Ninth ASLE Biennial Conference
Association for the Study of Literature and the Environment

In The Future of Environmental Criticism, Lawrence Buell observes that "the concept of place gestures in at least three directions at once—toward environmental materiality, toward social perception or construction, and toward individual affect or bond," all of which makes it, a "rich and tangled arena for environmental criticism" (63).

Critical Misidentifications - ASECS, Vancouver 3/11

updated: 
Friday, September 10, 2010 - 9:50pm
Jonathan Sadow

How does eighteenth-century theory and criticism identify, overidentify, or misidentify with its subjects? How does scholarship appropriate the ideologies of the phenomena it is supposed to explain? This seminar will seek papers exploring the ways critical understandings become entwined with the discourse, philosophy, or personas of their objects of study. Although effacement, misreading, and epistemological trouble will be necessary points of discussion, this session is also open to readings that explore these relationships as necessary or productive ones.

[UPDATE] CFP - Hector St. John de Crevecoeur - American Paradox (9/30/10, NEMLA 4/11)

updated: 
Friday, September 10, 2010 - 12:24pm
Tanya Radford/Dominican College

Hector St. John de Crèvecoeur's *Letters from an American Farmer* and *Sketches of 18th-Century America* remain relevant because of their exploration of American contradictions, and the manner in which they negotiate the paradoxes of American identity. This panel will examine the tensions at the heart of Crèvecoeur's writings, and explore whether some sort of balance (or "equipoise," to use farmer James's term) is possible in our contradictory America. Please send 300-500 word abstracts to Tanya.Radford@dc.edu by Sept 30, 2010.

Call for Articles: Germano-Slavica: A Canadian Journal of Literary, Linguistic and Cultural Perspectives

updated: 
Friday, September 10, 2010 - 9:10am
Prof. Paul M. Malone, University of Waterloo

Germano-Slavica: A Canadian Journal of Literary, Linguistic and Cultural Perspectives invites submissions of articles for the present volume, Volume 17, and upcoming volumes.

For over thirty years Germano-Slavica has maintained a dual area focus, unique in North America, on Germanic and Slavic literatures, languages and cultures. Our goal is to include both articles that explore the intersections, cross-connections, and frictions between Slavic and Germanic cultures; and articles focussing individually on a single area, either Germanic or Slavic, in any historical period and in any cultural field, including literature, linguistics, music, film, history and politics. Both interdisciplinary and cross-national approaches are encouraged.
