The proposed panel aims to build on enthusiasm for the “Experimental Narrative in Nonfiction” panel, held at the ISSN conference in 2018.

Ecologies

MARGINS Conference 2019
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, December 1, 2018

Conference Theme

In 2005, Jenny Rice suggested that we might move away from notions of rhetorical discourse as situated in a fixed place and time, with a specific aim and audience, towards an ecological view of rhetoric, where circulating texts transform rhetors, audiences, spaces, and events. Like biological ecologies, rhetorical ecologies are fluid rather than fixed, permeable rather than bounded. The Clemson University English Department invites graduate students from all disciplines to join us as we explore ecologies at the 2019 Margins Conference.

Seeking two additional papers for a two panel series at ANZSANA 2019 (Austin, Texas, February 6-8) relating the history and culture of Australia and New Zealand to settler colonialism as a transnational phenomenon. We are particularly interested in papers that:

 

• Engage in comparative work that relates the history and culture of Australia and/or New Zealand to that of the US

• Consider how Australia as a case study has shaped contemporary transnational understandings of settler colonialism as a structure of power. 

• Consider the relationship between critiques of settler colonialism and critiques of the patriarchy, especially vis-a-vis contemporary Indigenous feminist approaches.
