Theorizing about the body has never been more urgent than in our current era of climate change. Stacy Alaimo has compellingly argued that “potent ethical and political possibilities emerge from the literal contact zone between human corporeality and more-than-human nature.” In the decade or so since she first penned those words, these ethical and political possibilities have become even more urgent, and the borders of the contact zones themselves have become more blurred. Climate change has had increasingly intimate corporeal implications (especially in the Global South), and the widening gap between the rich and the poor has only exacerbated these matters, as has the global rise in right-wing extremism.

"African Perceptions of the Black Diaspora"
It is not surprising that the diaspora, in its representations of the origin seeks to establish and maintain the links with the dreamed motherland for everything leads to think that the place left, voluntarily or because of political, historical and even natural contingencies, do not leave the diasporic subject. Confronted with an in-between situation, his creative work articulates different identities, opposing cultures and a vague memory of the origin. But how does this origin think and represent its diaspora? This is the central question of this anthology, essentially dedicated to Africa.

American Literature Association (ALA) Panel Topic Proposal: Alternative Realities
This panel aims to explore alternative realities or perspectives that can be applied to and appear in American literature. Through this exploration, it is possible to discover new avenues of discussion and interpretation of popular and/or canonical texts, which in turn allows for deeper cultural and social understanding. Examining work that literally and figurative create alternative realities illuminates social anxieties, era-tied socio-cultural psyches, and continuing cultural patterns of oppression.
This panel is open to any American text, whether it is literature, graphic fiction, TV, video games and so on.
