Ecofeminist Literary Criticism

Theory, Interpretation, Pedagogy

      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.
