The Routledge Handbook of Ecocultural Identity brings the ecological turn to sociocultural understandings of self. The editors introduce a broad, insightful assembly of original theory and research on planetary positionalities in flux and formation in the Anthropocene – or what cultural ecologist David Abram presciently introduces in this Handbook as the Humilocene, the "epoch of humility." Forty international authors craft a kaleidoscopic lens, focusing on the following key inquiries in this burgeoning field:

Section I illuminates identity as always ecocultural, expanding understandings of who we are and how we become as individuals, groups, and a species.

Section II examines ways ecocultural identities are fostered and ways difference and spaces of interaction can be powerful sources for reimagining futures.

Section III illustrates ways the media sphere (re)produces and challenges particular ecocultural identifications.

Section IV delves into politics of identities and ways ecocultural frameworks inform resolutions as complex and integral as the current planetary moment.

Section V demonstrates ways to evolve identities and, in turn, the sociocultural systems at the heart of ecocultural relations.

The Routledge Handbook of Ecocultural Identity provides an essential interdisciplinary resource for scholars, teachers, students, protectors, and practitioners interested in ecological and sociocultural regeneration.
