The Nonhuman in American Literary Naturalism
Editors: Kenneth K Brandt and Karin M Danielsson
Call for Papers Jack London Society: ALA 32nd Annual Conference
July 7-11, 2021
Westin Copley Place
10 Huntington Avenue
Boston, MA 02116
Papers are sought for a session investigating any aspect of ecocriticism, including (but not limited to) ecocritical theory, Indigenous ecocriticism, environmental ethics, environmental justice, colonial, postcolonial, and settler colonial ecologies, gender and ecology, literary representations of non-human being, and interdisciplinary investigations of literature and environmental science.
Myth and the environment have shared a rich common cultural history travelling as far back as the old times of storytelling and legend (Love 2003; O’Brian and White 2017, Schama 1996). From native American oral narrative where animals, humans and other beings interact, to Genesis in the Bible or the Darwinian theory of evolution, we can trace a rich array of elements which qualify as myth in different cultures. All of them, almost constantly have effects on the environment. From animals to “supernatural events,” the liminality of myth exhibits transition and transformation.

Indigenous Environmental Artistic Practices Responding to Pollution:
Comparative Research between Oceania and the Americas
Organised by Estelle Castro-Koshy, Senior Researcher, James Cook University
Géraldine Le Roux, Ass. Prof., UBO (France), James Cook University
The conference gathers researches working in different disciplines to discuss the possibility of a radical change – social, economic, legal, environmental and, underlying all these, conceptual and ethical – in the relationship between humans and other animals. The question in the title refers to the possibilities as well as the challenges, of radically re-configuring ways of thinking of and living with animals, in opposition to a dominant framework in which animals are taken primarily as resources for human benefit.

Proposed for Spring 2022
Is drag separable from gender? A preponderance of self-described "drag things" (versus drag kings and queens) specializing in performances of non-human entities and appearing everywhere from stages in local gay bars to digital platforms like Instagram and YouTube would suggest so; however, when we speak of drag in academic literature, we hew closely to notions of drag as demonstrating gender performativity above all else. This collection therefore seeks to theorize a previously underrepresented form of drag performance that does not necessarily play with gender so much as it plays with humanness:We call this "posthuman drag."
For the next volume of Soapbox, a graduate peer-reviewed journal for cultural analysis, we invite young researchers and established scholars alike to submit work that critically engages with the theme of impasse.

Annual Conference of the German Association for Postcolonial Studies (GAPS), University of Oldenburg, 13-15 May 2021
The theme of decay and regeneration captures our current global moment of political uncertainty, environmental catastrophe, public health crises, and mass protest. In the past few years, we have witnessed a once-in-a-century pandemic; global protests in response to police brutality; a record-breaking Atlantic hurricane season; the largest wildfires in recorded Amazonian, American, and Australian history; the continued resurgence of fascist political ideologies; and the potential collapse of liberal democracy as we know it.
