Das Werk ist Teil der Reihe: Postcolonial Posthumanism


This book demonstrates how "The House Gun and Get A Life" by Nadine Gordimer, "Disgrace" and "Elizabeth Costello" by J.M. Coetzee, and "The Heart of Redness" and "The Whale Caller" by Zakes Mda, inspire the environmental awareness and contribute to the field of the environmental justice by insisting on the power of nonhuman agents. The book employs insights of "postcolonial-material ecocriticism" to discover a way of reading fictional representations in which all entities reflect on the enmeshment that challenges the binary segregation. The South African fiction is scrutinized as alternative environmentalisms, mirroring a turn to rethink nonhuman positions as a way to subvert anthropocentrism.
