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.
