"Sustainability and Population," MLA 2015, Special Session

This panel invites papers that examine the intersections of "sustainability" and "population" in literature. Papers may consider how race, demography, biopolitics, fertility, economics, agriculture, and spatial distribution help clarify, illuminate, and evaluate "sustainability"---what literary critics have deemed a thorny and vague concept in the past few years. Papers from any time period are welcome. Please send 250-word abstracts to Abby Goode (alg9@rice.edu) by 15 March 2014.
