Arts and Humanities scholars and literary and visual artists tackle Western environmental issues in provocative and transformative ways through the fields of environmental history, ecocriticism, ecofeminism, ecoart, ecopoetry, and environmental journalism.
"The editors and writers of these thoughtful, challenging essays—diverse examples of the best work in the environmental humanities—take seriously the cultural assumptions that create and perpetuate contemporary environmental crises. With a scope that considers the potential of the poetic to alter the West's exploitative relationship with nature alongside cases of deteriorating ecosystems, which illustrate the need for a new social contract with the land, these writers call for radical change." - Deanna Reder, Department of First Nations Studies and Department of English, Simon Fraser University; co-editor, with Linda M. Morra, of Troubling Tricksters: Revisioning Critical Conversations
