ASLE 2007 Proposed Roundtable, or Panel Environmental Science Fiction: Genre and Possibility Ecocriticism has indeed branched out to include literatures not typically associated with "nature writing." In an effort to continue this extension of ecocriticism into other genres, this roundtable/panel will explore the contributions of science fiction (SF) to environmental thought and ecological understandings. 250-word proposals are invited for a roundtable/panel that will examine SF as a literature well-suited to express the concerns of environmentalism and to explore humanity's place in ecological systems.

CFP: Queerness and Violence

Queer Studies Graduate Symposium
University of California, Davis
June 2, 2007

The war on terror has become the monolithic face of violence in dominant
cultural discourse at the same time that hate crime legislation has been
positioned as a marker of progress for the gay rights movement. Both of
these moves create an obsession with safety while simultaneously ignoring
other violences, such as police violence, domestic violence, the prison
industrial complex, and violences produced by medical establishments,
that continuously take and harm lives.
