Currents + Flows: Ecologies, Creativities, and Materials

“water has a syntax / a middle voice”  

                                                     – RITA WONG, “PACIFIC FLOW,” UNDERCURRENT

Currents and flows possess material histories and possibilities as they gain expression and traction through figurative language and other signifying forms. River currents. Electrical currents. Air currents with wildfire smoke. Ocean currents. Shipping channels. Ports of call. Finance flows. Pipeline flows. Speculative markets. Speculative fictions. Historical undercurrents. Climate thresholds in current affairs. Toxic flows through watersheds. Narrative streams. Poetic circuits. We invite submissions that explore the environmental humanities, literature, creative writing, and the environmental arts from any perspective. Proposals that engage with these priority areas are encouraged:

  • Watersheds
  • Blue Humanities 
  • Globalization Studies 
  • Settler-Colonial Studies 
  • Disability Studies
  • Anti-Racism and Decolonization Activism and Pedagogy
  • Energy Studies
  • Critical Animal and Plant Studies
  • Diaspora and Migration Studies
  • Urban Studies
  • Media Studies

For 2022, we have implemented a new approach, using forums. Please see the conference website for details.

Deadline: 1 December 2021
