>Following the Second World War, a re-examination of the animal as a
>category of ontological being by Heidegger, Levinas and Derrida pushed
>this question of philosophical theory out of its academic margin.
>Moreover, North America's ecocritical movement has produced an
>increasingly visible body of work. Nevertheless, the politics of animal
>representation remains quite underdeveloped in both literary theory and
>criticism. This panel will take submissions on literary works that
>reconsider how representations of animals function in terms of their
>politics, how different types of representations may not work to
>encourage or resist appropriation as metaphors, and in particular, how
>these works might rearticulate other questions of race, gender and
>transnationlism along the lines of species.

>For consideration, please e-mail 250-word abstracts by 15 September
