Re-imagining nature :
environmental humanities and ecosemiotics /
Alfred Kentigern Siewers, editor.
Explores new horizons in environmental studies, which consider communication and meaning as core definitions of ecological life, essential to deep sustainability. This book considers landscape as narrative and applies theoretical frameworks in ecophenomenology and ecosemiotics to literary, historical, and philosophical studies of the relationship between text and landscape. it considers in particular examples and lessons drawn from case studies of medieval and Native American cultures to illustrate, in an applied way, the promise of environmental humanities. In doing so, it highlights an environmental future for the humanities on the cutting edge of cultural endeavor today.
Includes bibliographical references (pages 251-271) and index.
