Geocritical Approaches to 20th and 21st Century Literatures

Presiding Officer: 
Megan Cannella, University of Nevada, Reno

Through a geocritical focus, the goal of this panel is to explore the significance of spatial identity. Building on the “Familiar Spirits” theme of the conference, this panel will focus on the spirit and identity of an area and its people. Papers might offer, for example, an ecocritical approach to a tribal community’s relationship with the “spirit” of the land or an analysis of the spatial identity of post 9/11 urban landscapes.
