Adrian Kane Participates in ‘Ecocriticisms of the Americas’ Panel

Adrian Kane, a professor of Spanish, recently participated in a panel session titled “Current and Future Ecocriticisms of the Americas” at the Association for the Study of Literature and Environment’s (ASLE) 13th biennial conference at University of California, Davis.

Engaging with Rob Nixon’s concept of slow violence as “a violence that occurs gradually and out of sight, a violence of delayed destruction that is dispersed across time and space, an attritional violence that is typically not viewed as violence at all,” Kane presented a summary of his research on narrative strategies for overcoming the challenge of representing slow violence in Latin American fiction.
