Right before the summer break, BASCE has invited Chad Weidner (University College Roosevelt) to present his most recent research. A leading scholar on the Beat Generation as well as on environmental thought and practice, Weidner has recently published The Green Ghost: William Burroughs and the Ecological Mind (Southern Illinois University Press, 2016). This study argues that we should not simply focus on the sensational aspects of Burroughs’s life and writing but should examine the environmental questions raised by his work, an approach that pushes the boundaries of existing ecocritical research more generally.
