This panel considers the intersections between literature and geography, or literature and environment, from the mid-nineteenth century through the modernist period. We are interested in how geographical knowledge circulates, regulates, conditions, or disrupts. Specific attention to how narrative functions (broadly conceived) in relation to particular disciplinary or interdisciplinary formations (academic, middlebrow, popular, avant garde) is welcome. 500 word abstracts and c.v. to Rebecca Walsh (rawalsh@ncsu.edu) and Anne Baker (abaker@ncsu.edu) by 15 March 2014.
