Green Cultural Studies: Nature in Film, Novel, and Theory
This multifaceted work of cultural criticism shows how differences separating culture from nature influence not only nature's treatment, but the treatment of human groups currently demarcated by the categories of race, class, gender, and sexuality. While the predominant current in green criticism - especially the seminal works of Donna J. Haraway and Andrew Ross - favors breaking down boundaries between animal and human, between nature and technology, Jhan Hochman shows these attempts at border crossing to reaffirm what they would erase: the promotion of culture over and against the needs of nature. While Hochman also shares the current suspicion of boundaries and borders, he is less intent on a melodrama of destruction than on a conversation concerning difference.
