The Strange Place of Ecocriticism: The Material as Cultural Artifact?

Presiding Officer: 
Dewey W. Hall, California State Polytechnic University, Pomona

The session invites paper proposals that take up discussion about the strange place of ecocritical discourse concerning the question of the materiality of nature as cultural artifact, or not, often represented through the production of articles, monographs, and editions. Papers may be interdisciplinary, transhistorical, transatlantic, or, more broadly, transnational. Paper topics for the panel may include writers as case studies to address the topic, such as: Charlotte Smith, Wordsworth, Keats, Clare, Thoreau, Emerson, Dickinson, Heaney, Lowell, Bishop, and Berry.
