This panel, which has been accepted for the 2019 ASLE biennial conference, seeks to respond to the following questions, among others: How do contemporary African novels inform us about the cultural formations and emerging global realities in the post-1960 world and help us reimagine African environments at the margins? In what ways postcolonial ecocritical engagements with African fictional narratives are crucial to open up the imaginative horizon of non-Western environmental epistemologies and ontologies? Why is the novel form significant in invoking both the place-based and the planetary sense of environmental imagination?

“We were lost piecemeal to the animals, / Like people thrown out to delay the wolves,” Robert Frost wrote famously in his poem “The White-Tailed Hornet” of the modern trend to investigate animality in humans. Robert Frost Society invites new essays on Robert Frost’s life and work which would engage some of the critical frameworks being developed today in animal studies.
