Reviews

"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 Quarterly
