Dr. Matthew Cella will give a presentation on Thursday, 11 April at 3:30 in DHC 051. The title of his talk is "You Don't Have to Hike the Trails to Care About the Forest: Disability Narratives and the Environment." The talk examines how autobiographical narratives by people with disabilities challenge normative (even ableist) constructions of the body-environment relationship. The study of these disability narratives therefore provides an opportunity to develop a richer and more inclusive ecological criticism. Matthew J.C. Cella is an assistant professor in the English department at Shippensburg University. He has published articles and reviews in a variety of journals, including Western American Literature, MELUS, and ISLE. His book, Bad Land Pastoralism in Great Plains Fiction, was a finalist for the Great Plains Distinguished Book Prize in 2011.
