This collection asks and answers a basic question: what is the relationship between humanitarian and environmental issues, and how are these portrayed in the media? The essays examine this question from a variety of academic viewpoints and argue that although the interests of planet and people are often seen in opposition, they are, in reality, symbiotic.

Despite the vibrant development of the field of ecocriticism on the island of Taiwan, there has, as yet, been no single volume in English dedicated to illustrating Taiwan’s important contributions to international ecocriticism, especially the emerging “vernacular” trend in the field that emphasizes the significance of local perspectives and styles, including non-western, aboriginal, and comparative approaches. Ecocriticism in Taiwan provides a model for a more nuanced version of the locale-specific, vernacular thinking about the environment, art, and human identity.

To come to terms with globalization, Caribbean writers adopt unexpected strategies. They write about flowers to help us look at race and sexuality differently. They see gardening as a means to make a violent, shapeless world livable. Writing the earth in a dark, queer turn to its materiality allows the imagining of human existence in a new way.

This volume gathers nineteen of the most representative and defining essays from the journal ISLE: Interdisciplinary Studies in Literature and Environment over the course of its first ten years. Following an introduction that traces the stages of ecocriticism's development, The ISLE Reader is organized into three sections, each of which reflects one of the general goals the journal has sought to accomplish. The section titled "Re-evaluations" provides new readings of familiar environmental writers and new environmental perspectives on authors or literary traditions not usually considered from a green perspective. The writings in "Reaching Out to Other Disciplines" promote cross-pollination among various disciplines and methodologies in the environmental arts and humanities. The writings in the final section, "New Theoretical and Practical Paradigms," are especially significant for the conceptual and methodological terrain they map. The ISLE Reader documents the state of research in ecocriticism and related interdisciplinary fields, provides a survey of the field, and points to new methodologies and possibilities for the future.

The degrading environment of the planet is something that touches everyone. This 2011 book offers an introductory overview of literary and cultural criticism that concerns environmental crisis in some form. Both as a way of reading texts and as a theoretical approach to culture more generally, 'ecocriticism' is a varied and fast-changing set of practices which challenges inherited thinking and practice in the reading of literature and culture. This introduction defines what ecocriticism is, its methods, arguments and concepts, and will enable students to look at texts in a wholly new way. Boxed sections explain key critical terms and contemporary debates in the field with 'hands-on' examples and comparisons. Timothy Clark's thoughtful approach makes this an ideal first encounter with environmental readings of literature.

Das Besondere dieser Darstellung der Entwicklungen des literaturtheoretischen Denkens ist erstens der historische Blick, der bis in die Antike zurückreicht, und zweitens das große Augenmerk auf den didaktischen Aspekt, das diese Einführung insbesondere für StudienanfängerInnen geeignet macht. Der historische Abriss bietet, als Geschichte \'erzählt\', einen ersten Überblick über die Zusammenhänge literaturtheoretischer Entwicklungen und kommt ohne Zitate und ohne Fußnoten aus. Daran schließen sechs Detailstudien zu den wichtigsten Theorien des 20. Jahrhunderts an.

Where now for postcolonial studies? That is the central question in this new volume from one of the field’s most original thinkers. Not so long ago, the driving force behind postcolonial criticism was literary; increasingly, however, many have claimed that the future of postcolonial studies is interdisciplinary. Interdisciplinary Measures thoroughly considers this alternative trajectory through the field of postcolonial studies by setting up a series of conversations among these newly postcolonial disciplines—notably geography, environmental studies, history, and anthropology—and literary studies in which the imaginative possibilities of non-Western epistemologies are brought to the fore.
