Produktbeschreibung

This book acknowledges that around the globe, humanity is similarly mistreating members of our own species and the Earth. The gap between rich and poor is increasing and anthropogenic pressures on the Earth’s living systems are now so high that scientists discuss the consequences of a 2oC global temperature increase and a sixth mass extinction of species as telling justification for an emerging ‘Anthropocene’. This volume stresses that such alarming trends are the consequence of ‘industrial masculinities’, which compel both women and men (who are the prime beneficiaries of industrialisation and are its primary proponents) to view and use the Earth’s resources for personal benefit at great ecological costs (Hultman, forthcoming). In alignment with some feminists and ecofeminist scholars, the contributors to this volume understand the problems at-hand to be largely the result of patriarchal or ‘malestream’ norms This book will provide an in-depth exploration of the intertwined aspects of Men and Nature. In doing so, the book calls forth the need for a pluralised conversation on how men and masculine identities – especially in the modern West – might adopt greater care for self and all others, both conceptually and in practice. Assoc. Prof. Hultman belongs to International Environmental Communication Association and the European Society for Environmental History (ESEH). He is the initiator of SweMineTechNet and co-ordinator of Environmental PostHumanities research network. He is part of the broader network of Environmental Humanities in Sweden as well as Science and Technology Studies. Assoc. Prof. Hultman has taken part in at least two international conferences a year the last ten years as well as serving as a Visiting Scholar at University of Canterbury and Massey University in New Zealand. Dr. Pulé is a member of Association for the Study of Literature, Environment & Culture – Australia & New Zealand (ASLEC-ANZ); the International Society of Environmental Ethics (ISEE); and the Centre for Research on Men and Masculinities (CROMM). Dr. Pulé has secured appointments as Visiting Scholar at the University of Oregon, USA and Linköping University (SWEDEN) [pending].
