The 26th Annual Meeting of the
Society for Literature, Science, and the Arts (SLSA)
PLACE: Milwaukee, Wisconsin (USA)
DATES: Sept 27-30, 2012
From its inception, SLSA has distinguished itself from other humanistic scholarly societies through its sustained interest in the nonhuman. Not only does SLSA concern itself with nonhuman actants like tools, bodies, networks, animals, climate, media, or biomes but it is also engaged with such nonhumanistic academic disciplines as mathematics, computing, and the natural and physical sciences. SLSA 2012 takes up the “nonhuman turn” that has been emerging in the arts, humanities, and social sciences over the past few decades.
