Literary Imagination of the Plasticene

Friday, August 16, 2019 - 11:06am
MLA 2020 Convention Just-in-Time Session
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, September 3, 2019

According to the US Geological Survey’s findings published in May 2019, “it is raining plastic” in the Rocky Mountains. Reports of airborne microplastics travelling around the globe are being released. The Arctic snow is shown to contain plastic particles. These disturbing discoveries attest that the pervasiveness of plastic has never been more conspicuous, even in the most “pristine” regions of the planet. At the same time, with India's impending ban on importing plastics from abroad for recycling purposes, plastic acts a political metaphor of neoimperialism that backfires on the “first-world” countries. In this era of Plasticene, we breathe, eat, drink, and excrete plastic.
