In a 2010 interview with Matthew Wolf-Meyer regarding her book Other-Worldly: Making Chinese Medicine Through Transnational Frames, Mei Zhan provides a definition of worlding which is applicable for this project because: “In insisting that knowledge-making is world-making, worlding foregrounds the fact that translocal encounters simultaneously produce dynamic forms...and animate uneven visions, understandings, and practices of what makes up our worlds and our places in them”(Wolf-Meyer).

The meaning of “women’s work” has never been stable. While women consistently have engaged with both the production of home and labor outside the home, their involvement in what Marx conceptualizes as wage-to-labor power exchange did not achieve heightened visibility in U.S. cultures until the nineteenth century. This panel seeks to address the many ways that women writers explore women’s labor in service to their families, their communities, and their nations, and how this labor contributes to the work of resistance and/or recovery across the Americas. How does women’s labor provide opportunities for collective dissent as well as recovery of women’s work?

For humankind, energy production and consumption present a double-edged sword. On the one hand, we need energy to survive; on the other hand, the production of energy with current technology poses a threat to our very survival as it is not sustainable from a long-term perspective. The emerging, highly interdisciplinary field of energy humanities (Szeman and Boyer “The Rise of Energy Humanities”, 2014) responds to these concerns by viewing energy as a key factor in contemporary human (social, cultural, political) relations.
