This book is available as open access through the Bloomsbury Open Access programme and is available on Drawing on the latest debates in ecocritical theory and sustainability studies, Literature as Cultural Ecology: Sustainable Texts outlines a new . In recent years the spatial turn in literary and cultural studies has opened up new ways of looking at the interactions among writers, readers, texts, and places.

    Questioning Nature stands as a masterful blending of biography, history, gender studies, and genre analysis that will undoubtedly provide fertile readings for established scholars as well as those venturing into the subjects of women’s literary and scientific writing in the Romantic era, in the long nineteenth century, and in British history Author: Melissa Bailes. Feminism, Cultural Studies, New Historicism, and so on. These many and varied trends have complicated greatly the task of understanding both the nature of theory and of the literary text. Literary theory can be understood, as I have suggested, in terms of principles and concepts, strategies and tactics needed to guide critical Size: KB.

    Ranging across diverse fields and incorporating cultural studies, post-structuralist literary theory, and ecofeminist philosophy, Literature, Nature, and Other both defines and critiques the current terrains of literary ecocriticism and nature writing/environmental literature. Literary examples are drawn from fiction, poetry, and prose.

I focus on some attitudes toward nature.

Cultural studies is a field of theoretically, politically, and empirically engaged cultural analysis that concentrates upon the political dynamics of contemporary culture, its historical foundations, defining traits, conflicts, and contingencies.

Cultural studies researchers generally investigate how cultural practices relate to wider systems of power associated with or operating through.

Cultural studies is a field that seeks to understand the meaning in the context of practices and customs within a society. It also explores how messages are conveyed through artistic expression and media. Cultural studies is a convergence of numerous subjects in the realm of the humanities and social sciences.

Cultural studies is an academic field grounded in critical theory and literary criticism. It generally concerns the political nature of contemporary culture, as well as its past historical precedents, conflicts, and issues. It is, to this extent, largely distinguished from cultural anthropology and ethnic studies in both objective and methodology.

Graduate Faculty members in Literary and Cultural Studies work on varied scholarly projects, share a commitment to the analysis of literature within larger cultural, social and political contexts, and utilize a wide range of critical methodologies, such as textual recovery, archival work, digital scholarship, and theoretical analyses.
