Summary

In this volume, emerging and established scholars bring ethical and political concerns for the environment, nonhuman animals, and social justice to the study of nineteenth-century visual culture. They draw their theoretical inspiration from the vitality of emerging critical discourses such as new materialism, ecofeminism, critical animal studies, food studies, object-oriented ontology, and affect theory. This timely volume looks back at the early decades of the Anthropocene to query the agency of visual culture to critique, create and maintain more resilient and biologically diverse local and global ecologies.
