Editorial Reviews

Review

"This impressively researched and vigorously argued study will be of the first importance to all environmental humanists, especially for its deeply-informed and subtle account of the 'trans-corporeality' of the human self." ―Lawrence Buell, Harvard University



"Alaimo offers new insights into feminist thought and theory. Bodily Natures: Science, Environment, and the Material Self is sure to appeal to many students and scholars of literary studies and critical theory." ―New Books in Critical Theory



"This is a book that should be read by anyone―scholars, students, readers, and anyone else with a body―for it is a marvelous contribution to environmental thinking and to human culture more broadly." ―American Book Review, December 1, 2010



"Alaimo does a fabulous job of thinking through how a trans-corporeal understanding of matter provides a more robust and more adequate basis for appreciating issues of environmental health and environmental justice." ―Nancy Tuana, Pennsylvania State University



"Bodily Natures showcases the distinctive contribution that an ecocritic can make to the field." ―Enviromental Ethics

About the Author
