Watersheds: 2022 ASLE Symposium

2022 ASLE Symposium: Watersheds June 24-26, 2022 University of Delaware

In hydrographic terms, watersheds are stretches of land that divide bodies of water from others. As the vast Chesapeake Bay watershed makes clear – draining the states of New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia – watersheds congregate and build; obviate political boundaries; blur lines between the terrestrial and aquatic, fresh and salt; seep and produce; teem and transform. Temporality in the watershed is also messy: times sink, sediment, and circulate as the past ...

NEMLA 2022: Poetry and Plant-thinking

Roundtable CFP for NeMLA 2022: Baltimore, MD, March 10-13, 2022

According to Michael Marder, “Plant-thinking” refers to “the non-cognitive, non-ideational, and non-imagistic mode of thinking proper to plants” or “thinking without the head.” Taking seriously the idea that plant thinking enables new perspectives on human encounters with the vegetal condition, this roundtable explores the vegetal poetics that engage with the agency, imaginaries, or futurities of—and the human entanglements with—plant lifeforms. Representative poets and writers in this vein might include Janice Lee, Evelyn Reilly, Adjua ...
