The Society for Literature, Science, and the Arts(SLSA) is sponsoring a panel at the upcoming ASLE Biennial conference on this general subject. Approaches may be critical or creative (or a continuum of both) and could include -- but are not limited to -- the following topics:

Science and the poetics of process and/as place

Science and Poetics as intersecting processes and/or onto-epistemologies

Fluid ontologies and hard realities (in scientific outcomes, ecological limits, etc.)

Meta-science and/or Philosophy of Science, in the context of the life/earth sciences and/or ecological problems

Critiques of scientific processes in the life/earth sciences (methodological discourses, etc.)

We are looking for four short papers of fifteen minutes each, but we might end-up with six ten minute presentations, depending on the response. There may be a respondent and/or Q and A. Please send abstracts of no more than 300 words and a two-page CV to Helena Feder at federh@ecu.edu no later than December 1st.
