[UPDATE] Bodies in Place: Disability and the Environment in American Literature (April 3-6 2014); Proposals due 9/30
This panel seeks a broad range of papers exploring how disability challenges normative constructions of the body-environment dyad. For example, how does disability-centered American literature negotiate the relationship between embodiment and emplacement? How might literature by people with disabilities contribute to a more inclusive ecocriticism? How might we re-examine 'canonical' American environmental literature through a disability studies lens? Please submit a 250-300 word abstract and brief bio to Matthew Cella at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline: September 30, 2013
Please include with your abstract:
