Stacy Alaimo has long been passionately concerned about environmental politics, animal ethics, and social justice, writing from places where those concerns intersect and sometimes collide. Her theory of "trans-corporeality" brings together new materialism, material feminism, environmentalism, and post humanist theories. She is the author of Exposed: Environmental Politics and Pleasures in Posthuman Times; Bodily Natures: Science Environment and the Material Self; and Undomesticated Ground: Recasting Nature as Feminist Space. Bodily Natures was awarded the ASLE prize for Ecocriticism, and its concept of trans-corporeality has been widely taken up. She is also the co-editor, with Susan J. Hekman of Material Feminisms, and the volume editor of Matter in the Gender series of MacMillan Handbooks. Alaimo's work has been translated into Swedish, German, Portuguese, and Greek. She is currently researching and writing on marine animal studies, ocean ecologies, and the Blue Humanities. She is currently a Professor of English and Distinguished Teaching Professor at The University of Texas at Arlington, where she directed the interdisciplinary minor in Environmental and Sustainability Studies for many years. She loves to hike, bike, scuba dive, free dive, swim, practice Ashtanga and other forms of yoga, and create backyard habitats for birds, butterflies, and reptiles. She wishes she could run off and join the Sea Shepherds.
