Feminist Ecologies: Changing Environments in the Anthropocene

Feminist Ecologies: Changing Environments in the Anthropocene, a new title by Lara Stevens, Peta Tait and Denise Varney (Palgrave Macmillan, 2018), explores a variety of perspectives on ecofeminism through case studies in diverse areas, such as the arts, politics, and the economics of the mining industry. The book will be launched by Liz Conor.

'As this extraordinary collection of writings decisively demonstrates, feminist theory’s fundamental commitment to equality and justice make ecofeminism the most powerful intellectual framework for tackling the increasingly complex and urgent manifestations of the global environmental crisis... Feminist Ecologies will be an invaluable resource for thinking, teaching, and acting responsibly in and about the Anthropocene.' —Una Chaudhuri, Professor of English, Drama and Environment Studies at New York University, USA
