Summary
Italy and the Environmental Humanities: Landscapes, Natures, and Ecologies" is the first book to examine Italy--taken as a territory of both matter and imagination--through the lens of the environmental humanities. The collection's twenty-two essays include contributions from leading environmental humanities scholars as well as narrative pieces by Italian eco-writers and theorists. The book builds an innovative proposal for reimagining Italy beyond its usual clichés as a hybrid, plural, eloquent place and takes theoretical approaches that include ecocriticism, posthumanism, environmental history and sociology, eco-art, food studies, and animal and landscapes studies, among others. Italian landscapes, natures, and ecologies here encompass post-seismic rubble and the stratifying geo-social layers of the Anthropocene, the contaminated fields of the ecomafia's trafficking and Slow Food's gastronomy of liberation, poetic birds and storied trees, resident parasites and nonhuman creatures. The volume records stories of life forms and signs, justice and violence, deserts and places, uncertain borders and oil, dissident communities and interspecies dialogues, poetry and slaughterhouses, industry and art, sea and roots. At a time when the tension between the local and the global requires that we reconsider our multiple roots and porous place-identities, the text builds a creative critical discourse and offers a series of new voices that will enrich not just nationally oriented academic studies but also the entire debate on environmental culture.--
