In continuing to foster opportunities for our members and community to gather digitally after our first Spotlight Series and our first virtual biennial conference in 2021, ASLE is continuing the Spotlight Series in 2022. The series will be offered both in live video format with audience, and in a recorded format for viewing and listening afterward, will launch in Spring 2022, and continue monthly. We presently anticipate four Spotlight episodes.
As in 2021 (View the 2021 Spotlight Episodes for reference), each event will feature moderated conversations with authors/creators of work chosen for thematic coherence across diverse media such as books, films, web projects, exhibits, etc.; 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. A committee of current and past ASLE officers will review the submissions and curate the series.
