Indiana University Press is pleased to announce the recent publication
of:

Queer Ecologies
Sex, Nature, Politics, Desire
Edited by Catriona Mortimer-Sandilands and Bruce Erickson

"A carefully crafted and well-executed volume, this collection
intervenes in
several important contemporary discourses in ecology, eco-politics, and
queer
theory, as well as more longstanding discourses of science and
history."
�Shannon Winnubst, Ohio State University

Treating such issues as animal sex, species politics, environmental
justice,
lesbian space and "gay" ghettos, AIDS literatures, and queer
nationalities,
this lively collection asks important questions at the intersections of
sexuality and environmental studies. Contributors from a wide range of
disciplines present a focused engagement with the critical,
philosophical, and
political dimensions of sex and nature. These discussions are
particularly
relevant to current debates in many disciplines, including
environmental
studies, queer theory, critical race theory, philosophy, literary
criticism,
and politics. As a whole, Queer Ecologies stands as a powerful
corrective to
views that equate �natural� with �straight�
while �queer� is held to be against
nature.
