ASLE (The Association for the Study of Literature and Environment) is holding its conference online from July 26 to August 6.
Keynote presentations include:
- Aimee Nezhukumatathil, poet and author of World of Wonders
- Brionté McCorkle, Executive Director of Georgia Conservation Voters
- Anthropologist and geographer Zoe Todd and sound artist AM Kanngieser, collaborating on “Environmental Kin Studies”
- A conversation between members of the project Mapping Migraciones
I’ll be participating in the Public Engagements stream as part of a panel focused on arts and the environment. For those of you who’ve read Writing for Animals, you’ll recognize the presentation “Writing for Animals: How Writers Can Use Their Talents to Better Advocate for Animals.”
Registration fees are quite reasonable given just how many presentations, panels and other events are included; And students can register for $15 or $30, depending on membership.
You can review all presentations here.
