> species be reconciled with those of endangered people?
>- Island ecologies: How are the special
>geographical conditions of islands
> reflected in their societies, ecosystems, and literatures?
>- Imperial ecology: How can ecocriticism provide us with a fresh look at
> colonial literature?
>- The war on tourism: What do postcolonial and nature-oriented writers
> have to say about (eco)tourism?
>- Bred in captivity: How are zoos, aquaria, botanical gardens etc.
> represented in postcolonial literature?

>take place on Friday and Saturday, February 24 ñ 25, 2006, at the Coastal
