Call for Papers, ASLE 2015 Conference: "Notes from Underground: The Depths of Environmental Arts, Culture and Justice"

In the midst of widespread focus on atmospheric climate change, perhaps we also need to look down, under, beneath and below for imaginative aesthetic, critical, pedagogical and activist responses? At our current political and ecological conjuncture, the literal underground is very much the subject of contest – extraction, pollution, depletion, neoliberalisation, cultivation, sovereignty, equity, (re)claiming – suggesting the need for creative new ways of engaging in activism, reading, writing and education in these networks of depth: underground arts, humanities, ecocriticism, justice. For the 2015 ASLE conference (June 23-27), we seek proposals for panels, papers, performances, discussions, readings and roundtables that address this constellation of undergrounds. Submission deadline is Dec 7, 2014.
