As part of its Spring 2010 colloquium series on Bios: Life, Death, Politics, the Unit for Criticism and Interpretive Theory is sponsoring a graduate student panel on CLIMATE CHANGE ACROSS THE DISCIPLINES, to be held on March 15, 2010.

We are seeking presentations from graduate students in the humanities, social sciences, and arts, engaging the question of climate change from a variety of disciplinary and theoretical perspectives.

Possible topics might include (but are not limited to) climate change in literature and popular culture; past historic episodes of climate change and human adaptation; climate change and economic justice; ecological politics; climate change and (or as) biopolitics; and climate change from an international/comparative perspective.

Please send proposals of no more than 250 words to Michael Verderame (mverder2@illinois.edu) by February 22, 2010.
