Panel description:

This panel invites speakers to consider the role of the humanities (and the “actors” within various academic disciplines) in anthropogenic contexts and possible climate futures. In what ways might we translate, mediate, and act out environmental issues for our readers, colleagues, students, institutions, and public audiences at large?

Feel free to email me with any questions or concerns. We look forward to your submission.

Note: The PAMLA Conference, held over the November 9-11, 2018 weekend at lovely Western Washington University in idyllic Bellingham, Washington, is a broad conference for scholars of a wide variety of literary, cultural, or media topics. There are over 125 approved sessions you could consider proposing to. You may submit to more than one session (if you do so, please let the presiding officers know you are doing so) but may only deliver one paper at the conference itself.

Please do not submit proposals to more than two or three sessions, and do not submit the same proposal to multiple sessions.
