Gendered Ecologies
New Materialist Interpretations of Women Writers in the Long Nineteenth Century

Edited by Dewey W. Hall and Jillmarie Murphy
Clemson University Press
ISBN: 9781949979046
March 2020

Gendered Ecologies: New Materialist Interpretations of Women Writers in the Long Nineteenth Century considers the value of interrelationships that
exist among human, nonhuman species, and inanimate objects as part of the environment in the work of a diversity of nineteenth-century female writers. The collection engages with current paradigms of thought influencing the field of ecocriticism and, more specifically, ecofeminism. Various theories are featured, informing interpretation of literary and non literary material, which include Anthropocene feminism, feminist geography, neo-materialism, object-oriented ontology, panarchy, and trans-corporeality. In particular, neo-materialism becomes a means by which to examine literary and non-literary content by women writers with attention to the materiality of objects as the aim of inquiry.

The book includes the chapter: A Space of  "unwanted liberty and pleasure": Charlotte Brontë's Treatment of Gardens in the Bildungsromansof Jane Eyre and Lucy Snowe.
