Ecocomposition examines current trends in universities toward more environmentally sound work, explores the intersections between composition research--that is, discourse studies--and ecostudies, and offers possible pedagogies for the composition classroom. Never before have the intersections between ecotheory and composition studies in theory and pedagogy been addressed in this much depth or detail. As universities become increasingly concerned with issues of the environment within academic disciplines across the spectrum, this book brings together a diverse group of prominent voices to discuss the development of ecocomposition and its possibilities, and to argue for a greening of composition studies through which to engage the world in which we live.

Review quote

"An intriguing intellectual ride, this is a book that enables one to actually do something tangible rather than theorize amongst other like-minded theorists. There is simply no other book like it." -- Stuart C. Brown, coeditor of Green Culture: Environmental Rhetoric in Contemporary America
