Call For Papers

ASSOCIATION FOR THE STUDY OF LITERATURE AND THE ENVIRONMENT (ASLE)
Henry David Thoreau famously writes in Walden, “I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived” (85). When Thoreau left his community to live in the forest by Walden Pond, he committed a transgressive act. He avoided people in favor of nature and renounced society in favor of an individual life well lived. Bearing in mind Thoreau’s transgressive act and thinking in terms of SAMLA 92’s theme Scandal, participants are welcome to submit papers on any aspect of ecocriticism, literature, and the environment, especially as pertaining to ecological and literary progress and peril. By June 1, 2020, please submit a 200 to 250 word abstract, brief biographical statement (including academic affiliation and contact information), and A/V requirements to Dr. Whitney Larrimore Strickland, Methodist University, at wlarrimore@methodist.edu. This panel is affiliated with ASLE (Association for the Study of Literature and the Environment) and SAMLA 92 (November 13-15, 2020, in Jacksonville, Florida).
