How does the encounter between literature/art and the elements contribute to the sculpting of contemporary landscapes? How do art and literature influence urban ecology (and vice-versa)? How do they inform the planning of our continually transforming environment? This roundtable welcomes paper proposals having to do with the interrelationships between literature, fine art, sound, or performance and urban ecology, with particular attention to the elements (earth, air, fire, water). Artists are particularly invited to contribute. Contributors' work may be considered for a book to appear in the “Ecocritical Theory and Practice” series, published by Lexington Books.
