Multiple environmental crises are increasingly inescapable at both transnational and local levels and the role of the humanities in addition to technology and politics is more and more recognized as central for exploring and finding solutions. Representations of nature’s agency have become central to many studies conducted in literature, culture studies, philosophy, history, sociology or political science. This conference aims to explore the relationship between the physical environment and text in its broader meaning as well as analyse the social concerns raised by environmental crises.
Conference panels will be related, but not limited, to:

Work may either be published or works-in-progress.

Food is a basic foundation of culture and society, it is vital to our health and well-being and it plays a significant role in our everyday creative engagement with nature. The shifts in activities surrounding food acquisition, preparation and consumption are not only essential for learning a culinary tradition but for examining a broader societal change.

Piotr Alekseevich Kropotkin (1842-1921) was one of the most prominent advocates of anarchism during his adult life, but also a famous intellectual and activist in Europe and further afield. In this centenary year of his death, we welcome you to join us for a discussion about his legacy, influence and relevance today. This conference will discuss his life and his work, but also his afterlife. Since February 1921, the world has lived without Kropotkin, but in many ways his ideas and his legacy persist. This conference seeks to specify, debate, contest, and carry on that legacy.

Many of the finest poets in America and abroad have been exposing the destructive relationships between humans and nature and reimagining our place on the planet to help us avoid catastrophe. As environmental writer John Nichols once stated, "To save the world, first we must love it.” This virtual (online) session on ecopoetics aims to inspire and cultivate such a love. We particularly welcome scholars and poets who explore the natural world as a text and the literary achievement of great nature writers as exemplary readers. Works by Adrienne Rich, Gary Snyder, Joy Harjo, Mary Oliver, W. S. Merwin, and Pablo Neruda, including original poems or translations, such as Merwin’s translations of Jean Follain, are encouraged.
Interdisciplinary Currents in the Environmental Humanities

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."

Community engagement and service learning are long-standing high-impact educational practices that have demonstrated value for students, faculty, higher education institutions, community organizations, states, regions, and nations. The societal focus on social justice movements, public health and the pandemic, and environmental issues has created unprecedented opportunities for engaging undergraduates in community-based research. These developments have highlighted community needs for certain types of data and projects as well as nurtured new forms of community engagement such as social entrepreneurship.
