We are living in an age when 'nature' seems to be on the brink of extinction yet, at the same time, 'nature' is becoming increasingly ubiquitous and unstable as a category for representation and debate. Futurenatural brings together leading theorists of culture and science to discuss the concept of 'nature' - its past, present and future. Contributors discuss the impact on our daily life of recent developments on biotechnologies, electronic media and ecological politics. Increasingly, scientific theories and models have been taken up as cultural metaphors that have material effects in transforming 'ways of seeing' and 'structures of feeling'. The book addresses the issue of whether political and cultural debates about the body and environment can take place without reference to 'nature' or the 'natural'. This collection considers how we might 'think' a future developing from emergent scientific theories and discourses. What cultural forms may be produced when new knowledges challenge and undermine traditional ways of conceiving the 'natural'.

Die Studie situiert Texte der Regionalliteratur Neuenglands, die im Zeitraum 1857 bis 1918 publiziert wurden, im zeitgenossischen amerikanischen Umwelt- und insbesondere Umweltschutzdiskurs und fragt nach den argumentativen wie narrativen Formen ihrer Partizipation an der in dieser Zeit gefuhrten naturethischen Debatte. Gegenstand der Untersuchung sind Romane und Kurzgeschichten Harriet Beecher Stowes, Rose Terry Cookes, Sarah Orne Jewetts und Mary E. Wilkins Freemans. Die Analyse des Spektrums naturethischer Argumentationsmuster zeigt, von welch hoher Bedeutung die Frage nach der Qualitat der Interaktion von Mensch und Natur in den Texten ist, und sie macht deutlich, dass eine naturethische Positionierung massgeblichen Einfluss auf die Konstituierung individueller, regionaler und auch nationaler amerikanischer Identitat hat. Bisherige Forschungsschwerpunkte der Autorin: amerikanische Literatur des 19. und 20. Jahrhunderts; afrikanisch-amerikanische Literatur; okologisch orientierte Literatur- und Kulturwissenschaft.

Introduces undergraduates to the key debates regarding space and culture and the key theoretical arguments which guide cultural geographical work. This book addresses the impact, significance, and characteristics of the 'cultural turn' in contemporary geography. It focuses on the development of the cultural geography subdiscipline and on what has made it a peculiar and unique realm of study. It demonstrates the importance of culture in the development of debates in other subdisciplines within geography and beyond. In line with these previous themes, the significance of space in the production of cultural values and expressions is also developed. Along with its timely examination of the health of the cultural geographical subdiscipline, this book is to be valued for its analysis of the impact of cultural theory on studies elsewhere in geography and of ideas of space and spatiality elsewhere in the social sciences.
