1. OConnell, Caryn. ""Accidents of Verte": Thomas Browne and the Aesthetics of Vegetal Life" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the RSA Annual Meeting, Grand Hyatt, Washington, DC,, <Not Available>. 2018-11-17 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p525229_index.html>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: How is aliveness known? This paper argues that the essays of Thomas Browne grant special purchase on that most basal and subsensible of vital phenomena, vegetative life. Much is at work in Browne's lavishly constructed prose, not the least of which is a theory of knowledge invested in the real potential of rigorous imaginative conjecture to possess, in some imaginative form, what has yet to be empirically determined—or, in the case of vegetal life, what has yet to be manifested. At the same time, Browne inverts classical ontological paradigms, transfiguring the vegetal not as the lowermost stratum in the hierarchy of life processes (the very stratum or line, as critics of biopolitics have shown, from which human life is understood to bifurcate), but as the apex of biological being. Finally, this life, as pursued in Browne's investigative aesthetics, invites us to ponder anew if we have ever been modern—or human.

"Plan Maroc Vert: Neo-Liberal Globalization and Agricultural Policy in Morocco" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Studies Association Annual Conference "Global Governance: Political Authority in Transition", Le Centre Sheraton Montreal Hotel, MONTREAL, QUEBEC, CANADA, Mar 16, 2011 Online <PDF>. 2018-11-17 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p503005_index.html>

Review Method: Peer Reviewed
Abstract: Morocco’s most recent reform in the field of agricultural policy, the Plan Maroc Vert, reaffirms the objective of overcoming the traditional imbalances and disparities of a strategic sector for the development of the country, but also marks a new step in the integration of the Moroccan economy within the neo-liberal, global market. This work-in-progress paper wishes to contribute to the exercise of gathering elements for an analysis – or a critique of the plan as it stands today, on the basis of the existing information. The paper focuses in particular on the question of the impact of the PMV on food security, on the environment, and on the question of agricultural labour, and contributes to identify priorities for future research.

4. Swift, Crystal Lane. "La Fée Verte: James M. Storm Transforms Reality into Fantasy" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the NCA 96th Annual Convention, Hilton San Francisco, San Francisco, CA, Nov 13, 2010 Online <PDF>. 2018-11-17 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p412001_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Review Method: Peer Reviewed
Abstract: This paper explores La Fée Verte (2007). This film provides a cyclical twist on a well-known myth. Within the stability of the myth of La Fée Verte, Storm changes the legend, only slightly. Theoretically, this film provides a unique narrative structure for a traditional, linear myth, and the possibility of revitalizing or rethinking other traditional myths. Rhetorically, the film both entrenches and rejects patriarchy. Pragmatically, the film is beautiful, entertaining, and inspiring.
