Environmenal Protests and Invisible Mental Structures

“Invisible mental structures”—shaped by beliefs in deities, spirits, and supernatural agents who act alongside humans—often provide the impetus for environmental protests. Formerly colonized countries or peoples, having all endured the suppression of indigenous language as well as the oral tradition conveyed through it, are often inclined to respond similarly to neocolonial incursions on the land. For example, Peter Read’s Haunted Earth examines Australian aboriginal sacred sites that have inspired protests; Paul Devereau’s Spirit Roads explores sacred roads and pathways around the world; Ramachandra ...

Waters Rising: A Special Issue of Green Letters on Imaginations of Floods

Waters Rising: A Special Issue of Green Letters

With a tradition dating back at least to the epics (e.g. Gilgamesh and Noah’s Ark), stories of floods have long been literary metaphors of great rhetorical power and familiar imagery; water can be a punishment for imagined wrongdoings and a means of washing away old worlds and starting afresh. The language of flooding permeates popular culture as a metaphor for forces out of control. In our current moment of environmental crisis, floods are often invoked to ...

Unchaining Sustainability: Working and Teaching for Regeneration and Resilience

Unchaining Sustainability: Working and Teaching for Regeneration and Resilience

In recent decades, U.S. institutions of higher education have in general moved toward supporting energy sustainability through course work and recycling programs, and many–from state universities and R1 institutions all the way across to private four-year colleges and associate degree schools– do a thoughtful job of introducing students to general concepts of broader but still diversity-light global sustainability. Although such courses and curricula, and the institutions that offer them, often link the effects of our ...
