The Ego and the Eco: Alex Menrisky and the Identity Politics of Ecology

April 2, 2021

You can submit an Eco Quick Fiction here by May 15 2021: (or find the link pinned on our twitter).

In this month’s episode, Jemma and Brandon sit down with Alex Menrisky, lecturer in English and Communication at the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth, to discuss his recent book Wild Abandon: American Literature and the Identity Politics of Ecology. What follows is a fascinating conversation on the historical ties of environmentalism to psychoanalysis and counterculture movements.

We apologize for the audio/technical issues in this month’s episode. We did our best to clean them up, but there are a few moments where you might hear some slight crackles, pops, or echoes. Those shouldn’t distract you from what is still a wonderful episode!
