2006 Summer Symposium
ASLE (Association for the Study of Literature and Environment)
Site: University of Maine at Farmington
Inviting presentations on the ways in which Maine has figured in the Environmenal Imagination of North America; how Maine has been a storehouse of transcendental virtue and authenticity for Massachusetts, southern New England, and the rest of the nation; and how Maine's "unspoiled" image was reconciled with the reality of clear-cutting and river pollution. Creative presentations are welcome.
