The Confluence: Octavia E. Butler at the Intersection of Cultural Critique and Climate Collapse

September 11-13, 2020 | St. Catherine University

A confluence is the place where two rivers meet. It is a place of not only great energy but great power and creativity. Located at one of the great confluences, the Twin Cities occupy this place called Bdote — “where two waters come together” — that is sacred to the Dakota people. The Octavia E. Butler Literary Society invites you to join us at this sacred place of power and creativity for the third biennial conference where we will feature work honoring Butler. 

Abstracts of no more 200 words will be accepted for  papers, panels and presentations or summaries of art and performance pieces and are due by May 31.
