Paradise on Fire: Association for the Study of Literature and Environment 2019 Conference
This year we are experimenting with a two-part submission process intended to make the conference more participant-driven and democratic. The first step is this ASLE 2019 Call for Panels. We are also issuing a call for Pre/Post Conference Workshop proposals at this time (included in the PDF). Proposals may be submitted until Sept. 1, 2018.
Conference panels may be proposed by anyone interested in organizing one. All panels are 90 minutes long and may take the form of a traditional paper session (4 presenters); a roundtable (up to 6 presenters making brief remarks that foster lively conversation); or a jam session (up to 8 participants in a nontraditional format of the organizer’s choosing that includes significant audience participation). These panels may be of two types:
- A preformed panel that lists all participants and is ready for the conference program as it stands.
- A panel seeking participants, to be filled by its organizers through the conference call for papers released in October. We expect the majority of accepted panels to be of this kind.
