Postcolonial Green brings together scholarship bridging ecocriticism and postcolonialism Since its inception, ecocriticism has been accused of being inattentive to the complexities that colonialism poses for ideas of nature and environmentalism Postcolonial discourse, on the other hand, has been so immersed in theoretical questions of nationalism and identity that it hasPostcolonial Green brings together scholarship bridging ecocriticism and postcolonialism Since its inception, ecocriticism has been accused of being inattentive to the complexities that colonialism poses for ideas of nature and environmentalism Postcolonial discourse, on the other hand, has been so immersed in theoretical questions of nationalism and identity that it has been seen as ignoring environmental or ecological concerns This collection demonstrates that ecocriticism and postcolonialism must be understood as parallel projects if not facets of the very same project a struggle for global justice and sustainability.The essays in this collection span the globe, and cover such issues as international environmental policy, land and water rights, food production, poverty, women s rights, indigenous activism, and ecotourism They consider all manner of texts, from oral tradition to literary fiction to web discourse Contributors bring postcolonial theory to literary traditions, such as that of the United States, not typically seen in this light, and, conversely, bring ecocriticism to literary traditions, such as those of India and China, that have seen little ecological analysis Postcolonial Green boasts a global geographical breadth, diversity of critical approach, and increasing relevance to the issues we face on a world stage.ContributorsNeel Ahuja, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill Pavel Cenkl, Sterling College Sharae Deckard, University College Dublin Ursula K Heise, Stanford University Jonathan Highfield, Rhode Island School of Design Alex Hunt, West Texas AM University Upamanyu Pablo Mukherjee, Warwick University Patrick D Murphy, University of Central Florida Bonnie Roos, West Texas AM University Caskey Russell, University of Wyoming Rachel Stein, Siena College Sabine Wilke, University of Washington Laura Wright, Western Carolina University Sheng yen Yu, National Taipei University of Technology Gang Yue, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill Xiamen University

Comments Postcolonial Green: Environmental Politics & World Narratives

    I loved this collection of essays applying an ecocritical approach to postcolonial narratives. I particularly enjoyed Caskey Russel’s discussion of the rhetoric around Makah whaling, Rachel Stein’s discussion of Ruth Ozeki’sAll Over Creation and Bonnie Roos’s discussion of Walcott’s Osmeros. The highlight of the book may be Ursula Heise’s afterword drawing our attention to the relationship of the aesthetic to the political content.
