Book description

The Routledge Companion to the Environmental Humanities provides a comprehensive, transnational, and interdisciplinary map to the field, offering a broad overview of its founding principles while providing insight into exciting new directions for future scholarship. Articulating the significance of humanistic perspectives for our collective social engagement with ecological crises, the volume explores the potential of the environmental humanities for organizing humanistic research, opening up new forms of interdisciplinarity, and shaping public debate and policies on environmental issues.

Sections cover:

  • The Anthropocene and the Domestication of Earth

  • Posthumanism and Multispecies Communities

  • Inequality and Environmental Justice 

  • Decline and Resilience: Environmental Narratives, History, and Memory

  • Environmental Arts, Media, and Technologies

  • The State of the Environmental Humanities

The first of its kind, this companion covers essential issues and themes, necessarily crossing disciplines within the humanities and with the social and natural sciences. Exploring how the environmental humanities contribute to policy and action concerning some of the key intellectual, social, and environmental challenges of our times, the chapters offer an ideal guide to this rapidly developing field.
