Ecologies of a Storied Planet in the Anthropocene

West Virginia University Press
A more-than-human approach to planetary survival, from a leading environmental humanist.

Ecologies of a Storied Planet in the Anthropocene is a tour de force. With transdisciplinarity and theoretical lucidity, it rethinks the Anthropocene from a material ecocritical perspective, envisioning innovative modes of knowledge for deeper understandings of Anthropocene ecologies. Focusing on nonhuman agencies, Serpil Oppermann shows in fascinating detail how to better imagine an ecological future on our storied planet that has suffered enormously from an anthropocentric mindset.
Genuinely interdisciplinary, clear, and readable. This should be read across the academy—from geography to literary studies.’
Claire Colebrook, Penn State University
