Association for the Study of Literature and the Environment Panel at MMLA 2017

This year’s Midwest Modern Language Association Convention will be held in Cincinnati, OH November 9th-12th.  Please see the conference website for details: http://www.luc.edu/mmla/convention/.

In response to the MMLA conference theme “Artists and Activists,” this panel seeks papers that explore green art and activism in this challenging—and critical—moment.  What kind of environmental activism does the present demand?  What forms of resistance are both effective and sustainable?  While papers that engage directly with ecocriticism / ecotheory are preferred, papers on all periods, genres/forms are welcome, as are papers on pedagogy, culture, or other topics.  Please submit a 250-300 word abstract including paper title to Dr. Lisa Ottum at ottuml@xavier.edu by April 5th.  Queries welcome.
