We would like to invite contributions exploring an intellectual meeting ground between new feminist and queer materialisms and affect theory, environmental humanities, science studies, and many more inter- and transdisciplinary fields. New/feminist materialisms and the affective turn are emerging at a time in need for alternative visions of the world threatened by human exceptionalism, ecological terror(ism), and devastating, extinction-fostering capital flows: they pose the question of how to theorize and practice ethical and decidedly posthuman or rather nonanthropocentric feminisms in the geological era of the (late capitalist) Anthropocene.

This panel invites interdisciplinary thinkers to transcend standardized methodologies for teaching and learning about the environment. The ASLE Biennial Conference (themed 'Paradise on Fire') will be held at University of California, Davis, from June 26-30, 2019.
Paradise is burning - or melting, flooding, or otherwise collapsing. In actuality, these collapses are simultaneous, or convergent as Christian Parenti has termed it. Or, as a recent article states, "when the Arctic melts, the West burns."

It matters what matters we use to think other matters with; it matters what stories we tell to tell other stories with; it matters what knots knot knots, what thoughts think thoughts, what ties tie ties. It matters what stories make worlds, what worlds make stories. (Donna Haraway, Staying with the Trouble)

CALL FOR PAPERS:
Whether in the American or global context, Souths are the site of cheap labor, once exploited agriculturally and then industrially for the profit of the colonizing and industrialized and technologically advanced Norths.
