Session Description:

The scientific paradigm of data-driven research seems to give short shrift for critique—for the analysis of social ideologies, cultural forms, and representations that defines the intellectual terrain of literary criticism. In response, our roundtable explores how literary criticism and cultural critique can contribute to the fields of environmental science, policy, and thought.


Subjects:

  • General Literature – Literary Criticism and Theory

  • General Literature – Literature and Other Arts, Humanities, Law, Psychology, Science, and Sociology
