Working Title: Grievable Nature: American Nature, Citizenship, and Discourses of Preservation and Loss
My current research project is situated in the field of ecocriticism | environmental humanities. I develop the concept of grievable nature, based on Judith Butler’s writings about (2004, 3009). Employing grievable nature as a lens, I explore conceptualizations of nature and environment in the North American context in fictional and non-fictional text from the 19th to the 21st century. Within this framework, relations and tensions between the concepts of nature, nation, citizenship, and affect will be at the center of my inquiries.
