All paper proposals must be submitted via the Submittable website by December 15, 2018 at 11:59pm EST.
There are nearly 130 panels seeking participants on a variety of topics. Submitting to an accepted panel greatly increases your chances of being accepted to the conference, but there is an open call for papers as well.
PLEASE NOTE: Submissions period for paper proposals opens October 15, the deadline is December 15, 2018 at 11:59pm.
All conference sessions will be 90-minutes long. ASLE strongly encourages presenters to find a panel seeking panelists among the nearly 130 options available. Both scholarly and creative submissions are welcome. We expect to receive more proposals than we can accommodate; therefore, not all proposals will be accepted. Proposals submitted to a specific panel will have a much greater chance of acceptance than individual paper proposals.
ASLE is a diverse professional community that is enriched by the multiple experiences, cultures, and backgrounds of its members, and we strive for access, equity, and inclusion in the conference.
Thank you for your patience as we attempt this two-step method of organizing our biennial gathering. Our desire is to maximize the ability of our membership to participate in the shaping of the conference, an event at the very heart of our ASLE community. As interest in the environmental humanities has greatly expanded, we hope this structure will not only be more transparent but will take better advantage of the wide-ranging interests, expertise, and diversity within ASLE.
For questions about submitting, contact us at ASLEconference2019@gmail.com.
Note: you must be or become a member of ASLE by the time of conference registration (Spring 2019) to present at the conference. Join or check your membership status. For assistance with membership, please contact Amy McIntyre at email@example.com.
We encourage undergraduate involvement in ASLE, and specifically at the organization’s biennial conferences and off-year symposia. To ensure that the experience is a positive one for the student(s) and faculty member(s), the Graduate Student Liaisons have developed this guide as a resource for faculty interested in involving their undergraduate students in ASLE: ASLE_Guide_FacultyUndergradEngagement
