Panel at RMMLA Conference, October 8-10 2009, in Snow Bird, Utah.

As the environmental movement gains more attention, many genres of
literature reveal their own insights of the natural world and how the
concept of "nature" varies between different people. This panel is
particularly interested in works by women of color and how they are using
literature to challenge definition, expand the boundaries of the
environment, and discover new routes towards environmental justice.
Prominent examples include works by Ana Castillo, Linda Hogan, and Toni
Morrison. Some important questions that papers may address:

What counts as an "environment"? How are traditional notions being
challenged by women of color?
