Workshop: "Ecocritical Life Writing in the Dystopic Present"

Workshop "Ecocritical Life Writing in the Dystopic Present"

Dec 5 and Dec 6, 2019

Haus St. Ulrich, Augsburg:



"This Workshop sets out to re-visit the close relation of the fields of life writingand ecocriticism in what might be called the "dystopic present." In four panels on different spaces (forests, oceans) and theoretical approaches (postcolonialism, feminism) and supported by keynote speakers the workshop will reflect upon the interdependencies between nature and the human in an age where this relation is largely seen as a dystopian one."


The workshop is funded by the American Studies department and the Gesellschaft der Freunde der Universität Augsburg.
