Panel proposal for the upcoming conference of the Association for the Study of
Literature and Environment at Wofford College in Spartanburg, South Carolina,
June 12-16, 2007:

African Americans and the Environment

As ecocriticism continues to expand its borders from the study of traditional
nature writing, so too must the perception of the American “nature experience”
extend beyond what has largely been a white pastime. This panel will consider
literary representations of African Americans and nature by black and white
writers, pre- and post-Civil War, which engage issues of ecological ethics,
environmental justice and activism, agriculture, gardening, and beyond.
