Beginning conversations

We are looking forward to Tuesday, June 21, 2011 in Bloomington for a great workshop about the intersections between ecocriticism and media, specifically ecocinema.

There is a description of this workshop on the ASLE conference website, and in this blog’s About page. and we currently have a full seminar with fifteen participants. In anticipation of a packed 3-hours of discussion, we’ve set up this blog as a space where our conversations about ecocinema studies can begin.

Position paper titles will be up in early May, and participants are strongly encouraged to post questions, comments, thoughts, and ideas regarding their papers and the recommended reading and viewing list.

We hope for lively and thoughtful work on the past, present, and future of ecocinema studies.
