@TuftsGradConf will be live-tweeting throughout the conference today. Join the conversation using #TGHC2014!
The Tufts Graduate Humanities Conference is just around the corner. We’d love to have you share your thoughts at the roundtable! We’ll be jump-starting our discussion of “eco-imaginaries” with the very excellent, very short essay “Black Women and the Wilderness” by Evelyn White. Follow the link for a PDF file, or pick up one of the copies available on the table between East 201 and 203.
This roundtable is an open, collaborative space where we can put ideas together that might not otherwise have the chance to bounce off each other. So, please, speak up no matter what your specialty!
See you from 2:40-3:30 on October 10th (and probably some other times as well)!
Your Roundtable hosts,
Emma, Lai Ying, Aaron, and Jenny
We are very excited to present the full schedule for Eco-Imaginaries, and we hope to see many of you there on the 10th!
In preparation for Elizabeth DeLoughrey’s keynote at the Eco-Imaginaries conference (10/10), we’re having a discussion of her introduction to Postcolonial Ecologies on Monday, Sept. 22nd at 5pm ON CAMPUS. We’ll meet at the entrance to East Hall and do a walking eco-tour of campus while we discuss.

We’re a little over three weeks away from our conference, and as we look forward to the inspiring conversation and debate of “Eco-Imaginaries” on October 10, we would like to ask our readers: What are the important conversations you think we should be having right now? What are the most crucial environmental issues of the moment – socially, economically, politically, etc.? Give us some feedback in the comments section!
Next Thursday we’ll be discussing Cherríe Moraga’s play Heroes and Saints, an award-winning production based on the impact of rampant pesticide use in the San Joaquin Valley in the late ’80s on the farm workers. As usual, we’ll meet at iYo in Davis Square at 6pm.
Looking forward to talking with you about it!

We hope that summer is treating you well! Just a reminder that the environmental working group will be meeting this Thursday at 6pm at iYo in Davis Square to discuss Timothy Findley’s NOT WANTED ON THE VOYAGE. It’s a retelling of the biblical flood story from the perspective of Noah’s wife and her cat–it’s bizarre, entertaining, eco-feministy… It’s also a pretty quick read, so if you haven’t started it yet, you could likely still manage it (you could also attend even if you haven’t finish, in classic book club fashion).
