Be True to the Earth

Inaugural ASLE-ANZ Conference

March 31-April 1, 2005

At the opening plenary of the inaugural conference of ASLE-ANZ (Monash University, Melbourne, 31 March–2 April 2005) Richard Kerridge encouraged us to make ecocriticism sexy.

In the two days that followed we did the best we could. If sex involves passionate engagement, something more than furious agreement, the odd energetic tussle, sustained attention, playfulness, generosity, seriousness, and—now and then—astonishment, I’d say we did pretty well.
