Environmental Narratives of Resistance and Recovery

Women writers have long used various narrative forms to record their perceptions of, resistance to, and recovery from environmental degradation. We propose a panel for the SSAWW conference, dedicated to resistance and recovery across the Americas, that explores the ways in which women have documented their environmental consciousness.

We encourage papers that expand both geographical and narrative boundaries and welcome submissions that explore written texts (memoir, poetry, nature journal), visual art, digital projects, and other kinds of personal narrative as tools of environmental justice. We welcome perspectives from across the Americas.

Please send a 250-word proposal and short bio to Tina Gianquitto at no later than February 14, 2018.
