Women Writing Nature: A Feminist View

Rachel Carson, writer, scientist, and ecologist, became famous as a naturalist and science writer for the public. Embedded in her early works was the view that human beings were but one part of nature distinguished primarily by their power to alter it, in some cases irreversibly. With the 1962 publication of Silent Spring, she challenged the practices of agricultural scientists and the government, and called for a change in the way humankind viewed the natural world.

This year, I am accepting paper proposals for several panels on early modern literature to be delivered at the Thirty-Seventh Annual CEA Conference on Reading the Regions / Writing the Regions / Teaching the Regions to be held from 6-8 April 2006.
 
Papers are especially welcome that deal with ways in which early modern writers dismantled, elaborated, heightened, or constructed ideas of regional identity. Topics that are particularly welcome might address:
intersections between gendered self-fashioning and regional identity
imagined regions (utopias, fantasies, romances)
liminal regions
ecocritical perspectives on place and region
geography and identity
domestic "regions"
