‘Victorians and Animal Welfare: The Transnational Network in Literature, Culture and Intellectual Thought ’

updated: 
Tuesday, December 20, 2022 - 1:52pm
St. Hugh's College, Oxford, United Kingdom
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, January 10, 2023

The Victorian era in general viewed animals not as mere property or utility, but as thinking, feeling subjects worthy of inclusion within a political community. It is increasingly in this light that the nineteenth-century British animal welfare movement and animal characters in Victorian literature are now being re-examined. Rather than regarding the literary sphere as a means of generating static influence over human attitudes towards animals, the deliberations at this colloquium shall seek to prove that it may be regarded as a repository of resources open to uses in the ongoing animal rights movement of the later nineteenth century in Britain and as the stepping stones to deeper ecological consciousness of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

How do we understand our bodies? Our own bodies might be the first we experience as children, but how do we use this lived experience to understand the bodies of other people? The bodies of everyday folks we meet on the street, bodies that may range from healthy to diseased, able to disabled, sports fit to couch potato, real to represented, cared for to cared by, and everything you can think of in between—how do we think about people who are like us but also somehow different? What knowledges do such encounters between variAble bodies create?

Adaptation is a term that bridges the divide between literature and evolution. Texts are adapted to speak to new circumstances as time advances and younger writers, directors, actors, artists, and audiences seek connections to a mutable culture. Likewise, organisms adapt over generations to better suit their circumstance.

ASLE + AESS 2023: (Non)fictional Representations of Labor in Reclaiming the Commons [New Deadline]

updated: 
Wednesday, November 30, 2022 - 1:54pm
Matt Morgenstern / Purdue University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 2, 2022

Environmental humanists are uniquely poised to consider how creative texts (including but not limited to novels, short stories, poems, films, theatre, visual art media, and podcasts) represent the imagined labor of reclaiming the commons in a variety of contexts. Though these representations may range from realist to fabulist, from actionable to impossible, EH teachers, writers, scholars, and activists can share these representations to inspire new, detailed methods for reclamation. Accordingly, this panel considers how various texts represent the labor of reclaiming the commons and how those representations can speak to real-world reclamation efforts.

Panel proposed at the 2023 ASLE + AESS Conference: “Reclaiming the Commons”

July 9-12, 2023 in Portland, Oregon

What are the possibilities—and limitations—of investigating commonalities between the plant and the human for discovering new forms of trans, nonbinary, and genderfluid sexualities? How might the study of vegetal forms of agency trouble the very notion of sexual subjectivity as something that originates inside an individual, rather than its environment? Given the role of botany as both a sexual and colonial science, how do postcolonial authors create new rhetorical relations to plant life to express not only queer sexual identities, but the specificities of postcolonial identity more broadly?

We want to highlight good practice in the restoration of different materials and the solutions adopted that respect and enhance the spirit of the place.

WATER

The sea is calm tonight.

The tide is full, the moon lies fair

Upon the straits; on the French coast the light

Gleams and is gone; the cliffs of England stand,

Glimmering and vast, out in the tranquil bay.

"Victorian Gothic and the Occult" Edited Collection

Kirstin A. Mills (Macquarie University)

Saturday, December 31, 2022

The Victorian era, and the Nineteenth Century more broadly, witnessed a flourishing of interest in the supernatural, spiritualism, magic, and the physical and psychological sciences, which culminated in the emergence of occult beliefs, practices and societies. During this period also, the Gothic literature and art that had taken hold of the public imagination in the Romantic period continued to haunt the Victorian era, emerging in new forms that often embraced and experimented with ideas of occultism. Nineteenth-century occultism has received much critical attention, particularly in relation to its role in bringing about the apogee of British and American occultism in the early twentieth century.
