CFP: Ecocriticism and The Animal Other (09/15/06; NEMLA, 03/01/06-03/04/06)

Theorist Cary Wolfe claims the question of the animal is "perhaps the central problematic for contemporary culture and theory." This panel seeks papers that address the presence of the animal in literary, filmic, and other cultural forms. Proposals energized by interdisciplinary and cultural studies methodologies are especially welcome. Also welcome are proposals that use the location of the animal to theorize new modes of ecocritical practice.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
