Since the very cradle of civilization, Nature has been one of the secular concerns of poetry and philosophy. In a classic like Walden; or Life in the Woods (1854), Henry David Thoreau said: “I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately”. The woods would make him whole again; solitude and Nature would reactivate a claritas of mind in him that had apparently been overshadowed by human commerce. About a century later, Ezra Pound sang in The Cantos: “Learn of the green world what can be thy place / In scaled invention or true artistry” (81/541), aware as he was of the fact that the world is a subtle ecology of vast dimensions that needs our attention and respect.

CFP George Gissing and Born in Exile

Lost and Found: Texts as Exploration and Discovery - Extended Deadline

updated: 
Tuesday, January 10, 2017 - 6:54pm
The Acacia Group, California State University, Fullerton
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 3, 2017

The Acacia Group invites submissions both academic and creative from all disciplines for this year’s conference “Lost and Found: Texts as Exploration and Discovery” at California State University, Fullerton on March 17th-18th, 2017.

This conference seeks to find the lost voices of marginalized groups, scholarship that is “just a student paper,” identity in an age of technology, and connections between seemingly disparate experiences. Ultimately, we are looking for work that explores what is lost and what is found through our interaction with texts (which includes literary texts as well as performative, cinematic, social media, and other forms of textuality). What is lost? What is found? What happens now that it is lost/found?

The relationship of feminist criticism to science has been ambivalent since the early stages of the feminist movement, when learned wo*men and activists such as Margaret Fuller aspired to rival “men of science.” Condemned as the “master’s tools” by some, science and technology have also been praised for their potential to liberate wo*men, especially from reproductive responsibilities and from the Western origin myths associated with biological functions.
