Abstract

Unbraided Lines offers a foray into environmental writing—an emerging literary genre that engages the current ecological crisis through poetry, creative non-fiction and other textual forms. This work foregrounds the ways in which environmental writing intersects with contemporary intellectual, social, and creative movements concerned with ecological justice. With chapters on bioregionalism, ecocriticism, environmental ethics, ecopoetry, botanical art, and ecopedagogy across Australian and American traditions, Unbraided Lines forwards a view of environmental writing that is transdisciplinary, locally grounded, and globally relevant.
