Greening The College Curriculum from the Author: Jonathan Collett. This book breaks new ground in that its purpose is to "mainstream" teaching about the environment in higher education. Despite the holistic nature of the content, the book is structured-with two exceptions-around disciplinary chapters. The opening chapter, "Reinventing Higher Education," and the final chapter, "Reinventing the Classroom: Connected Teaching," provide an interdisciplinary frame for the book. Disciplinary chapters include anthropology, biology, economics, geography, history, literature, media and journalism, philosophy, political science, and religion. Each chapter begins with an introduction that asks, "What can the content and methodology of this discipline bring to the study of the environment?" and conversely, "What challenges and opportunities does this material create for teaching basic concepts in this discipline?" Sample plans are presented next, either for course units or for full courses. Material for introductory or lower division courses generally precedes that for advanced or upper division courses. The chapters each conclude with a resources section that includes teaching materials, print and nonprint, and background material for the instructor. (JRH)

Transversal Ecocritical Praxis from the Author: Patrick D. Murphy. Transversal Ecocritical Praxis: Theoretical Arguments, Literary Analysis, and Cultural Critique, Patrick D. Murphy, Ph.D, utilizes ecocriticism and ecofeminism to develop his concept of transversal practice: an interdisciplinary combination of theory and applied criticism. He begins by explaining the necessity for cutting across disciplinary boundaries of all kinds in order to address the ecological dimensions of culture and literature. The dialogical foundation of this orientation is elaborated through a consideration of the theories of Mikhail Bkahtin, particularly in terms of the ethical responsibilities of the reader and critic. Murphy then takes up issues of identity and subject formation in relation to genetics, embodiment, and selfhood. These same issues play out in the history of the aesthetic category of the sublime, which the author critiques from an ecofeminist perspective. Following that, he turns attention to cultural issues of consumption, both at home and internationally, looking particularly at postcolonial literature and forms of resistance to globalizations and agricultural land grabs. Resistance and postcolonial literature is further analyzed through consideration of two book-length Latin American poetic sequences, one by Pablo Neruda and the other by Ernesto Cardenal. Switching from works focused on the present, Murphy turns his attention then to how these themes play out in the future oriented worlds of science fiction. He concludes with two chapters that combine ecocriticial cultural critique and economic analysis in studies of the destructive role of megadams, particularly in Asia, and the impact of the combined threats of peak oil and climate change on one island's tourist economy. The conclusion contains a discussion of further drivers of future ecocritical analysis. Traversing a wide range of examples, literary, cultural and economic, this work fleshes out the benefits of an ethically grounded interdisciplinary ecocriticism.

The Structure Of Detachment from the Author: Hiroshi Nara. The philosopher's controversial link with Heidegger is explored by Jon Mark Mikkelsen in the final essay, which concludes that, although Heidegger's view of art is consistent, both historically and conceptually, with his political involvement with fascism, the same cannot be said of Kuki."
