Ecotones: Ecology and Theory
Edited by Rick Elmore and Anthony Paul Smith
An ecotone is the term for that space where two biomes meet, combine, and transition one to the other. Ecotones: Ecology and Theory is guided by the conviction that serious work in the environmental humanities must inhabit such theoretical ecotones between the humanities and scientific ecology. The series aims for truly interdisciplinary work where each of the traditional domains challenges the other to foster truly ecological thinking.
Books in the series investigate the ways in which scientific ecology might challenge and be useful to reconceiving traditional domains like metaphysics, epistemology, and political thought. The series also includes theoretical works that challenge certain un-investigated philosophical and theoretical presuppositions within scientific ecological practice. The aim of the series is to provide a platform for work that explores the changing field and role of theory in an age when ecological questions are literally changing not only the landscape but also the need, practice, and role of the humanities.
The series welcomes proposals for monographs and well-curated edited collections that pioneer new directions of inquiry.
