KEYNOTE SPEAKERS:

Kazim Ali (virtual keynote) currently a Professor of Literature at the University of California, San Diego. His newest books are a volume of three long poems entitled The Voice of Sheila Chandra and a memoir of his Canadian childhood, Northern Light.

Dennis J. Coker is Principal Chief of the Lenape Indian Tribe of Delaware

Hillary Eklund is an Associate Professor of English at Loyola University, and author of Literature and Moral Economy in the Early Modern Atlantic: Elegant Sufficiencies. Her current book project describes how wetlands, often perceived as nature’s “mistakes,” both compel and elude human designs, demonstrating a series of “unfast” countermoves to the fast violence of colonial incursion and technological imposition, and to the slow violence of ecological manipulation and resource expropriation.

Stacy Levy, a sculptor making large-scale public installations in rivers, streets, parking lots, airports and nature centers. Her projects are designed to allow a site within the built environment to tell its ecological story to the people that inhabit it. 

Victor Perez, Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Delaware. His research focuses on self-migration/relocation from climate change impacts and environmental burdens, planned/adaptive relocation of environmentally burdened communities, green/environmental gentrification, and intensive zoning.
