[asle] Call for Submissions – UnderCurrents

Hey majors,

See below for a great place to think of publishing a research or creative piece you had a lot of fun with this last year.

Subject: [asle] Call for Submissions – UnderCurrents

Please circulate widely – apologies for cross postings.

UnderCurrents Volume 18: End Times and Beginnings
Call for Submissions

The UnderCurrents editorial collective is happy to announce that, after a
four-year hiatus, the student-run journal of critical environmental studies
will be re-launched in the spring of 2013. As such, we invite visual and
text-based contributions for our upcoming issue, fittingly titled ?End Times
and Beginnings.? We are seeking scholarly and artistic work that critically
engages with ideas of environmental restoration, regenesis, and utopia, on the
one hand, and post-apocalyptic narratives, responses to and causes of
environmental crisis and catastrophe, historic accounts of other apocalypses,
and imaginings of the end of days on the other. As we find ourselves in a
world that is, as Stephen Lewis asserts, ?facing the possible catastrophic
implosion of humankind? where scientists predict unprecedented environmental
change of apocalyptic scale on the immediate horizon, where might we find hope
for our future? This issue solicits work that challenges current climate
change, environmental disaster, and environmental activist rhetoric, attempts
to come to terms with despair over massive species extinctions and widespread
suffering, and, perhaps most importantly, imagines different possibilities for
the future.

Possible topics include but are not limited to:

Postapocalyptic literature and film
Hope and environmental activism
Melancholy and mourning
Restoration ecology
Environmental disaster management
Utopian environmental movements
Climate change fiction, poetry, and theory
Critical perspectives on climate change, sustainability, and resilience
Environmental history and historic accounts of environmental disaster and
The possibility and promise of hybrid natures
Critiques of green is the new black and green washing,
Dark ecology
Slow apocalypse/slow violence
Posthumanism as an antiapocalyptic (or apocalyptic) gesture
Disarticulations neoliberalisms
Militarization of nature
Time and temporality

Electronic submission preferred.
Include name, address, brief bio, email, and phone number.
Please submit artwork in black and white, at least 5×7, 600 dpi., tiff files,
and text (maximum 6000 words) in .doc to:
Deadline for submissions is September 17, 2012.

selected. UnderCurrents encourages authors to engage in anti-discriminatory
discourse. Please visit our website for more

Hi ES Students,

Are you looking for a summer job? If yes, please check this one out from ES alumna, Katy Lesser.  




Kuhn Orchards attend 11 farmers markets in D.C. and Northern VA each week and we are looking to hire some new people to attend market for us.  We employ a few high school and college kids who come home for the summer.  But by the end of August (when they go back to school) and through the fall, we still need people for market.  I was wondering if there might be any ES students who are staying on campus this summer, who have good work ethic (I mean good work ethic), and would be interested in attending markets for us on through the fall.  During the summer they could attend weekday markets; then once classes start, we could move them to weekend markets if weekday markets no longer fit their class schedule.  

A typical market day is a 12 hour period from the time they arrive on the farm to the time they get in the car to go home.  We have about a 2 hour drive both ways (which the students could sleep), so really, its 8 hours of actual working.  For our morning markets, the truck leaves between 4:30am and 5:00am, and for our afternoon markets the truck leaves between 11:00am and 11:30am.  Pay is between $120 and $180, determined by how much produce is sold.  I’ve attached the job description.  

If you think there are any students who might be interested in this job opportunity, please forward this email them.  Thanks!

I hope all of your finals go smoothly and that you enjoy your summer!!  

Take care,


Katy Lesser Clowney
