Gratis frakt inom Sverige över 159 kr för privatpersoner.Ecofeminist Literary Criticism is the first collection of its kind: a diverse anthology that explores both how ecofeminism can enrich literary criticism and how literary criticism can contribute to ecofeminist theory and activism. Ecofeminism is a practical movement for social change that discerns interconnections among all forms of oppression: the exploitation of nature, the oppression of women, class exploitation, racism, colonialism. Against binary divisions such as self/other, culture/nature, man/woman, humans/animals, and white/non-white, ecofeminist theory asserts that human identity is shaped by more fluid relationships and by an acknowledgment of both connection and difference. Once considered the province of philosophy and women's studies, ecofeminism in recent years has been incorporated into a broader spectrum of academic discourse. Ecofeminist Literary Criticism assembles some of the most insightful advocates of this perspective to illuminate ecofeminism as a valuable component of literary criticism.

"An outstanding contribution to the developing field of ecofeminism. It will be as useful to those who have been looking for a good text on which to base a course in ecofeminist literary criticism as it will be to those who wonder what the field is all about. Taken together, these essays suggest the range of connections and possibilities implicit in ecofeminist literary criticism -- connections, for example, between spirituality and science, ecology and literature, or environmental activism and literary theory." Carol H. Cantrell, professor of English, Colorado State University
