This panel seeks papers that investigate the importance of indigeneity in twentieth-century environmental literature. We are especially interested in texts that use aspects of Native American culture to establish ethical and sustainable relationships to the land. Questions we hope to address include: What does it mean to be a native of a particular region? How do specific aesthetic forms facilitate a greater awareness of the natural world? Why might indigeneity be indispensable to an ecological perspective?
Please send 250-word abstracts to: Benjamin Priest or Josh Weinstein by 9/15/07. The panel will be held as part of The Northeast Modern Language Association (NEMLA) 39th Annual Convention, in Buffalo, NY, April 10-13, 2008.
Please include with your abstract: Name and Affiliation / Email address / Postal address / Telephone number / A/V requirements (if any; 10$ media service charge)
