Call For Proposals: ASLE (Association for the Study of Literature and the Environment) Panel at the SSAWW 2015 Conference
SSAWW-ASLE Affiliate Panel
Margins and Networks
In keeping with the theme of the SSAWW 2015 Conference, “Liminal Spaces, Hybrid Lives,” this roundtable invites conversations on how the mapping of networks—of correspondence, of influence, of participation—can help us reconsider ideas of margin and periphery. We welcome talks that consider the kinds of networks in which women writers, artists, and others participated. We are especially interested in hearing about projects that explore new tools (especially digital or computational) that encourage network mapping and interpretation.
We are seeking exciting and creative work-in-progress that would benefit from presentation in a roundtable format. Recognizing that discussion among roundtable participants and between participants and audience members can yield productive results, we seek abstracts of project that could be presented in brief, 5-10 minute remarks (as opposed to formal presentations) and that open themselves up to broad conversation and discussion.
Please send a 250-300 word proposal (with title), a 60 word bio, and contact information (with affiliation) to Tina Gianquitto (firstname.lastname@example.org) by February 11.
