It is designed to cover writings on landscape and on plant and animal life. It aims to emphasize women's participation in scientific discussion of Darwinian ideas, and also in a broader range of scientific and aesthetic engagements with nature.

Writing teachers know that writing itself is not a neutral act of articulating knowledge, but a highly contested act of constructing oneself in relationship to one's environment. We are also aware of how online spaces differ from traditional spaces and how those differences affect the way that teachers and students construct themselves in relationship to each other. This edited collection will look at how teachers in different disciplines have grappled with these issues and what they can tell us about writing as an act of negotiating identities.

This is a proposed special session for the 2012 MLA convention. Sixteenth and seventeenth-century works, from Utopia to The Blazing World, engaged in acts of worldmaking by speculating on or inventing "possible worlds." This panel will examine the scope and limitations of these early modern possible worlds, and more generally, the condition of the "possible," which authors variously define through the terms "what may be," "what should be," or even "what if."
