"Corrects the heteronormative bias that influenced environmental literature from the beginning and challenges the rigid distinctions between nature and culture." Deane Curtin, Gustavus Adolphus College "A carefully crafted and well-executed volume, this collection intervenes in several important contemporary discourses in ecology, eco-politics, and queer theory, as well as more longstanding discourses of science and history." Shannon Winnubst, Ohio State University "[V]ibrant texts, brimming with possibilities for rethinking, rereading, and reinflecting the links between perception, ontology, epistemology, politics, and ethics. ... [A]llow[s] for the possibility of further reflections on the material conditions of intellectual inquiry, and for what materialities our 'immaterial labors' might creatively enact, change, transform."--Women's Studies QuarterlyVom Verlag:
Treating such issues as animal sex, species politics, environmental justice, lesbian space and "gay" ghettos, AIDS literatures, and queer nationalities, this lively collection asks important questions at the intersections of sexuality and environmental studies. Contributors from a wide range of disciplines present a focused engagement with the critical, philosophical, and political dimensions of sex and nature. These discussions are particularly relevant to current debates in many disciplines, including environmental studies, queer theory, critical race theory, philosophy, literary criticism, and politics. As a whole, Queer Ecologies stands as a powerful corrective to views that equate "natural" with "straight" while "queer" is held to be against nature.
