Feminist Ecologies: Changing Environments in the Anthropocene


Stevens, Lara, Peta Tait, and Denise Varney, eds. 2018. Feminist Ecologies: Changing Environments in the Anthropocene. London: Palgrave Macmillan.

Authors: Lara Stevens, ed. , Peta Tait, ed., Denise Varney, ed.


This edited volume critically engages with ecofeminist scholarship. It tracks the ongoing dialogue between women’s issues and environmental change by republishing the work of pioneering scholars and activists in the field. Together with new essays by contemporary ecofeminist scholars, the book uncovers the dialectical relationship between environmental and feminist causes, the relational identities of feminists and ecofeminists, and the concept of ecofeminism as a rallying point for environmental feminism. The volume defines ecofeminism as a multidisciplinary project and will appeal to readers working within the field of Environmental Humanities. (Summary from Palgrave Macmillan)
