This panel invites interdisciplinary thinkers to transcend standardized methodologies for teaching and learning about the environment. The ASLE (Association for the Study of Literature and the Environment) Biennial Conference (themed 'Paradise on Fire') will be held at University of California, Davis, from June 26-30, 2019.
Paradise is burning - or melting, flooding, or otherwise collapsing. In actuality, these collapses are simultaneous, or convergent as Christian Parenti has termed it. Or, as a recent article states, "when the Arctic melts, the West burns."

ESVA's Collections Manager, Stephanie Templin, takes us on a tour of the history of Ker Place, the Federal-period Georgian-style house in Onancock, Virginia that houses the Historical Society of the Eastern Shore of Virginia (ESVA). Merchant farmer John Shepherd Ker and his family built the house from 1799-1803, which is just before Tudor Place began its construction in 1805. Today, the mansion is home to the Historical Society that captures the stories of notable characters of the Eastern Shore’s past.
