Loughborough University in June 2006 highlighted the
quality of academic research being done which
interrogates, acknowledges and challenges boundaries
in critical and creative literature. This collection
is in part inspired by and, in part, a response to the
success of the conference and the wide range of
high-quality academic discussion that came from it.

CFP: Ecocriticism and The Animal Other (09/15/06; NEMLA, 03/01/06-03/04/06)

Theorist Cary Wolfe claims the question of the animal is "perhaps the central problematic for contemporary culture and theory." This panel seeks papers that address the presence of the animal in literary, filmic, and other cultural forms. Proposals energized by interdisciplinary and cultural studies methodologies are especially welcome. Also welcome are proposals that use the location of the animal to theorize new modes of ecocritical practice.

Tony C. Brown

The animal is something of a hot topic right now: MLA 2006 will
boast no less than three panels
devoted in some way to it. So much of what is being said and done on
the topic, however, is
framed by the question: what is the animal for the human. That is,
this work directly follows
the paradigm set down by Giorgio Agamben in his book L'aperto:
L'uomo e l'animale (2002),
taking the animal to constitute the human. This panel asks: Is there
another way to understand
the animal? And can we find that way (or indeed, ways) in the
eighteenth century?

Please send Abstracts for proposed papers, along with a brief CV, to:
