New Essays in Ecofeminist Literary Criticism

Synopsis

"Ecofeminist activism and scholarship are becoming increasingly conspicuous as women and men resist the waste, injustice, and cultural impoverishment of global capitalism while attempting to preserve indigenous lifeways or create new, sustainable ones. In the process, feminist literary and cultural ecocriticism has become more interdisciplinary, multicultural, and international. The present volume gathers new essays in ecofeminist literary criticism and theory that extend this critical trajectory for ecocriticism in the context of social eco-feminist theory and practice."
