Presenters/Papers:

  1. Patricia Hackbarth, Independent Scholar
    The landscapes featured in many works of literature have been greatly altered in the years since they were written, by anthropogenic change, from resource extraction to development to climate change. Thus literature can be a powerful gateway for exploring the relationship between humanity and the environment we depend on. Online tools using satellite imagery offer a fascinating approach to exploring these changes. This presentation will demonstrate some uses of these tools to illuminate the human impact on the places at the heart of our literature and our lives.
  2. Ron Milland, Independent Scholar
    This paper will engage in an exercise of meta-collaboration in an effort to apply interdisciplinarity, initially on the level of critique. In exploring Haraway in comparison and contrast to other scholars, this analysis will ultimately adhere to the humanities the sort of scholarly foreground needed for teaching for the Post-Anthropocene.
