Urban Places: The Literary Ecology of American Cities (Abstracts by 9/30)

Monday, September 28, 2009 - 2:39pm
Karen E. Waldron / Northeast Modern Language Association Conf. April 7-11, 2010

This proposed panel follows on a very successful seminar discussion conducted at NeMLA 2009 entitled: "The Literary Ecology of American Literature: Constructions of Place." It proposes to continue wrestling with the significant questions of methodology in studying literature of and about the environment through a particular focus on the literature of cities. This work is critical to studies of literature and environment, an area which has not been theorized adequately. The need to draw effectively on other disciplinary knowledges and how they manifest in linguistic form is central to this effort and the ultimate goal of the project is an edited collection of essays on the literary construction of place within the American context.

Home/sickness: Desire, Decay, and the Seduction of Nostalgia

The University of Florida's 9th annual English Graduate Organization conference will explore nostalgia, focusing on the contradictory relations among desires for recovered pasts as well as deliberate attempts to manipulate the present through representations of the past.
