What are the crucial issues for the artist regarding constructing nature with language? How much was Jeffers aware of and disturbed by his medium? Do authors like Jeffers and Abbey find themselves troubled by the intersection of language and the world, where writers like Silko see this as necessary and indistinguishable? And if so, what are the socio-cultural implications?
These are not meant to limit the kinds of questions about language and nature that are possible. And, of course, as always, other topics are always welcome for proposals.
