Ladino Publishes Collection of Essays on Environmental Humanities
October 09, 2018
Jennifer Ladino, an associate professor in the Department of English, has published a collection of essays, "Affective Ecocriticism: Emotion, Embodiment, Environment," with the University of Nebraska Press. The book compiles fourteen original essays on the study of affect and emotion in regard to films, poetry and contentious sites such as Canada's Tar Sands. The project grew out of an Association for the Study of Literature and Environment conference hosted in Moscow in 2015. Reviewers are calling it a "field-changing" book for the environmental humanities.
