While it may be the first day of spring, traveling to warm places makes it easy to forget what that means. I’ve been enjoying LA and the SCMS all this week. Besides the three sessions devoted explicitly to ecology and cinema (or ecocriticism and cinema), there have been papers and sessions on animals, water, ecocide and the postmetropolis, and related topics — all of which indicates a growing presence of ecocinecriticism within the cinema/media studies world.

If anyone is interested in a PDF of the paper I’m giving today (partly summarized here), you can e-mail me privately about that.
