GRID + Flow: Philadelphia and Beyond; Mapping and Reimagining Urban Ecologies through the Arts and Humanities. New interdisciplinary currents in the environmental humanities--including environmental history, ecocriticism, cultural geography, environmental media studies, and environmental ethics--offer opportunities for understanding and interpreting the interaction between people and the non-human environment in urban places.
The organizers of GRID + Flow invite proposals for papers in the environmental humanities addressing aspects of Philadelphia's relationship with non-human nature. Especially welcome will be proposals that examine the history and current state of Philadelphia's urban ecology in light of broader regional, national, and transnational environmental concerns such as sustainability, environmental justice, and climate change. The symposium is organized by Alan C. Braddock (Art History), Peter d'Agostino (Film and Media Arts), and Andrew Isenberg (History).
Faculty, professionals, and advanced graduate students are invited to submit proposals Please submit a one-page CV and 250-word abstract for a 20-minute paper vie e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 7, 2011.
