Globalizing Ecocriticism

Taking up the call of ecocritics who point out that the field needs to continue broadening its
approach beyond localisms, this panel seeks papers that foreground the global (broadly conceived)
as a productive site for ecocritical thinking. Potential topics might include: exploring linkages
between postcolonial and ecocritical approaches, theorizing transnational ecocriticisms, examining
supranational environmental movements, interrogating discourses of global risk, thinking about
diasporan ecological subjects, and probing the possibilities of glocal ecocriticism.

This panel is co-sponsored by the Association of the Study of Literature and the Environment.

CFP: [18th] "Alan Bray's Friendship" (ASECS, 3/26-29 2009)

Michael Thomas Taylor

The Gay and Lesbian Caucus invites 5-10 minute roundtable discussion topics on the work of Alan
Bray for the 2009 ASECS conference (March 26-29). His two main works, Homosexuality in
Renaissance England (1982/1995) and The Friend (2003), span twenty years of academic
achievement in the study of homosexuality, family, and friendship. We are looking for ideas and
thoughts on the development of his theses or more specifically on his self-proclaimed "puzzling"
notions of homosocial and public friendship as they concern eighteenth-century scholarship.
Please send your proposals to both chairs: Michael Taylor -mttaylor_at_ucalgary.ca- and Kristi
