About the Elements in Environmental Humanities series

The environmental humanities is a new transdisciplinary complex of approaches to the embeddedness of human life and culture in all the dynamics that characterize the life of the planet. These approaches reexamine our species’ history in light of the intensifying awareness of drastic climate change and ongoing mass extinction. To engage this reality, Cambridge Elements in Environmental Humanities builds on the idea of a more hybrid and participatory mode of research and debate, connecting critical and creative fields.

We have tried to touch on a range of subject areas for initial offerings, as the list below demonstrates:

The Anatomy of Deep Time: Rock Art and Landscape in the Altai Mountains of Mongolia, by Esther Jacobson-Tepfer

Beyond the Anthropological Difference, by Matthew Calarco

The Environmental Humanities and the Ancient World, by Christopher Schliephake

Forces of Reproduction, by Stefania Barca

Ecosemiotics: The Study of Signs in Changing Ecologies, by Timo Maran

The Virus Paradigm, by Roberto Marchesini

Ecosemiotic Landscape, by Almo Farina

Coming soon is Wasteocene, by Marco Armiero

ASLE members may want to ask their university libraries to acquire subscriptions to the series.  That way the Elements can be freely available to faculty, students, and other interested readers who have library access.  These texts are relatively short, around 60 pages in print, and are available in both digital and print form
