Ecocriticism and Environment: Rethinking Literature and Culture

Debashree Dattaray (Editor) Sarita Sharma (Editor)

This book focuses on the interface of sustainability, ecology and the environment as reflected in literature and culture. This eclectic collection of essays examines how writers have, across the twentieth century and in the new millennium, addressed ecological crises and environmental challenges that cut across national, cultural, socio-political and linguistic borders. The book also singles out literary genres which are particularly sensitive to issues of sustainability.

The essays in this volume, by scholars and activists across the globe, address the diverse ways in which environments are imagined, produced, and articulated in diverse contexts and mediums and the consequent changes in humanistic discourses in the context of global climatic changes. They also critically examine how literature and culture, across the limits, frames and dimensions of time and direction, address and explore environmental concerns. The book draws insights from the diverse fields of literature, sociology, gender, anthropology and cultural studies, addressing key issues such as global warming, queer ecology, dichotomies of nature/culture, as well as interrelationship between community and land.

This would be one of the first major works bringing together scholarship from the East and West focusing on Ecocriticism in a glocal world. This academic reference book which will be of use to scholars and students of literature, culture studies, film studies, and gender studies departments. Centres and Departments of Comparative Literature, Canadian Studies, English, Culture Studies, and Interdisciplinary Studies will also benefit from the book.
