To foster opportunities for our members and community to gather digitally, ASLE is developing a new series of live and recorded events to spotlight outstanding new work in a diverse range of ecocritical traditions and literatures and in the environmental humanities. This series will be offered both in live video format with audience, and in a recorded format for viewing and listening afterward. The series will launch in early 2021 and continue monthly. We presently anticipate four Spotlights.
Each event will feature moderated conversations with authors/creators of work chosen for thematic coherence across diverse media (including books), include both critical and creative work, and highlight publicly engaged scholarship. The series will provide opportunities for ASLE members to present and discuss new work in a range of ecocritical traditions and literatures and in the environmental humanities.
You do not need to be an ASLE member to submit your materials, but membership is required to be featured in the ASLE Spotlight. Submitted work should have a publication/release date in 2020 or 2021. A committee of past and current ASLE Executive Council members will review the submissions and curate the series.
To be considered for ASLE Spotlight, please apply by January 15, 2021.
