What forms might such a politics or poetics take? How are these reflected in literary or cultural production? Papers may address culturally specific ways of knowing, culturally specific ways of being, embodied experience, historically-sedimented experience, legal systems and their material fallout, ways of understanding rights and obligations, human/nonhuman relation, the elements (earth, water, fire air, metal), land, climate/weather, or activist culture.
