The “Ecocriticisms of Américas” interest group was founded in 2019 to gather and support members of the Association for the Study of Literature and the Environment working on the Caribbean and Latin America. “Ecocriticisms of the Américas” will sponsor up to two panels at the 2021 virtual ASLE symposium, to be held asynchronously from July 26- August 6. See https://www.asle.org/stay-informed/asle-news/2021-virtual-conference-cfp/. Panels sponsored by the interest group must still apply for acceptance through the traditional ASLE channels, but sponsorship enhances the visibility of the panel at this large conference. To be considered for sponsorship of any pre-formed panel focused on the Caribbean and/or Latin America, send a 500 word abstract for the panel, paper titles, and a one page CV of proposed participants to Dr. Charlotte Rogers at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 23rd. Please note that individual paper proposals will not be accepted for sponsorship. Panelists will be notified of their sponsorship status before ASLE’s April 1 deadline for proposals.
