Hot off the Press, and CFP

2010 August 16

Paula Willoquet-Maricondi’s edited collection, Framing the World: Ecocriticism and Film is hot off the press. You can find a description at the University of Virginia Press website.

In addition, Paula also currently has a CFP for ASLE’s conference upcoming in June that should be interesting to those engaging in ecomedia pedagogy that involves college sustainability initiatives (I can see innovative projects such as college community based film festivals, eco-blogging, awareness campaigns and the like fitting this category).

CFP: Teaching Sustainability: Multidisciplinary Perspectives and Approaches

In 2009, The American College & University Presidents Climate Commitment
published the “Climate Neutral Campus Report” outlining the role of higher
education in addressing “the greatest intellectual, moral, and social
challenge human civilization has ever faced” (6), the challenge of
fostering a healthy, just, and sustainable society. While an increasing
number of US Colleges and Universities are making environmentally
sustainable practices a focus of campus operations, educating for
sustainability is yet to become a curricular focus across all degrees and
disciplines, the necessary foundation for a significant paradigm shift that
some call the “sustainability revolution.”

I am seeking proposals on specific approaches to integrating sustainability
education into the curriculum: for example, as part of the graduation
requirement; through the creation of new courses in a wide range of
disciplines or that are interdisciplinary (all disciplines welcome); by
re-designing courses so as to incorporate an educational experience aligned
with the principles of sustainability; by creating interdisciplinary
programs on sustainability.

Depending on the level of response, multiple panels or formats (traditional
session, roundtable, or paper jam) will be considered. Please send a 600
word proposal by October 1 to
Please include
contact information and bio.
