Many of the finest poets in America and abroad have been exposing the destructive relationships between humans and nature and reimagining our place on the planet to help us avoid catastrophe. As environmental writer John Nichols once stated, "To save the world, first we must love it.” This virtual (online) session on ecopoetics aims to inspire and cultivate such a love. We particularly welcome scholars and poets who explore the natural world as a text and the literary achievement of great nature writers as exemplary readers. Works by Adrienne Rich, Gary Snyder, Joy Harjo, Mary Oliver, W. S. Merwin, and Pablo Neruda, including original poems or translations, such as Merwin’s translations of Jean Follain, are encouraged.

This virtual (online) session welcomes papers on any aspect of the Humanities being used to increase quality of life, whether through public humanities, applied humanities, the arts, healthcare, social services, or other avenues; and, this year, papers that attempt to engage the conference theme of “City of God, City of Destruction” are particularly welcome.
