Editor(s): Carol J. Adams, Lori Gruen
Publisher: Bloomsbury Academic, 2014

Excerpt from http://www.bloomsbury.com:

Leading feminist scholars and activists as well as new voices introduce and explore themes central to contemporary ecofeminism.Ecofeminism: Feminist Intersections with Other Animals and the Earth first offers an historical, grounding overview that situates ecofeminist theory and activism and provides a timeline for important publications and events. This is followed by contributions from leading theorists and activists on how our emotions and embodiment can and must inform our relationships with the more than human world. In the final section, the contributors explore the complexities of appreciating difference and the possibilities of living less violently. Throughout the book, the authors engage with intersections of gender and gender non-conformity, race, sexuality, disability, and species.The result is a new up-to-date resource for students and teachers of animal studies, environmental studies, feminist/gender studies, and practical ethics.
