Description

Ecocriticism is a relatively new subfield of inquiry in the humanities, burgeoning in response to climate science. Interpreting literary texts from a perspective that foregrounds the non-human natural world invites new readings of the world that humans occupy and how they interact with one another as well as with animals and the enviroment.
