Ecospectrality: Haunting and Environmental Justice in Contemporary Anglophone Novels (Environmental Cultures)
Laura A. White (Author)
Available / dispatched within 1 - 4 weeks
Along with humans and animals, ghosts populate the pages of contemporary Anglophone novels. Analysing novels from across the world-including Australia, Nigeria, South Africa, India, and Jamaica, this book explores how these ghosts can help readers to perceive difficult-to-visualise environmental threats and access marginalised environmental knowledge. Instead of prompting fear, these hauntings foster understanding across species and generations to enable inclusive formulations of environmental justice. Drawing on the latest work in postcolonial ecocriticism, hauntology, and environmental philosophy and such literary texts as GraceLand, No Telephone to Heaven, The Rock Alphabet, and The Ministry of Utmost Happiness, Ecospectrality is an essential read for anyone working in the environmental humanities today.
