Environmentalism and Postcolonial Studies, Postcolonial Literature, Session I

updated: 
Wednesday, February 26, 2014 - 3:41pm
South Atlantic Modern Language Association

In her afterword to Postcolonial Green, "Postcolonial Ecocriticism and the Question of Literature," Ursula K. Heise writes, "In the convergence of ecocriticism and postcolonialism...this question of the aesthetic arises with double force. If we believe—as I assume most ecocritical and postcolonial critics do—that the aesthetic transformation of the real has a particular potential for reshaping the individual and collective ecosocial imaginary, then the way in which aesthetic forms relate to cultural as well as biological structures deserves our particular attention" (258).

[UPDATE] March 12, 2014 "Not an Exit but a Shift: Changing Children's Literature" (MLA 2015; Vancouver, BC)

updated: 
Wednesday, February 26, 2014 - 1:17pm
Modern Language Association

In her 1998 article "Exit Children's Literature?" Maria Nikolajeva meditates on contemporary trends in the children's genre and closes with the statement that "we must acknowledge that, sooner or later, children's literature will be integrated into the mainstream and disappear." This panel responds to the question of her title, but it focuses less on the idea of a disappearance or death, and more on a reimagining of the children's genre. With this in mind, we invite papers that address the ways turn-of-the-twenty-first-century children's texts have shifted to accommodate and reflect a contemporary childhood through changes in aesthetics, mediums, genres, and/or ideologies.

"I'm sick of Flannery O'Connor." With this opening line, Randy Boyagoda intrigued numerous readers in his response to Paul Elie's 2012 New York Times article entitled, "Has Fiction Lost Its Faith?"

Boyagoda will be the keynote speaker, and this conference aims to continue the discussion which Elie, Boyagoda, Gioia, and Wolfe have perpetuated. Papers will be considered from a variety of disciplines and fields but should pursue questions regarding the intersection of faith and literature.
