Session Description:

Green dominates thinking about ecology like no other color. What about catastrophe, disruption, excess? We explore a world of multihued contaminations and ecological possibilities. Short presentations focus on a single color (red, maroon, beige, brown, chartreuse, orange, deep blue) to catalyze lively discussion.


Subject:

  • General Literature – Literary Criticism and Theory
