"This talk suggests some new possibilities for ecological critique by revisiting the familiar, gently antiquated concept of the Romantic imagination. Through readings of William Cowper, Dorothy Wordsworth, and the late-Romantic artist and filmmaker Derek Jarman, I propose a return to literary and aesthetic questions about how we imagine, represent, and make sensible phenomena which are intermittently or not at all available to the senses." 
- Anahid J. Nersessian
