Caracciolo (co-ed. w. Karlsson Marcussen & Rodriguez): Narrating Nonhuman Spaces

Marco Caracciolo, member of the ICLA theory committee, is co-editor, with Marlene Karlsson Marcussen and David Rodriguez, of Narrating Nonhuman Spaces: Form, Story, and Experience beyond Anthropocentrism. Published by Routledge, this edited volume builds on the assumption that our understanding of the nonhuman world is bound up with the experience of space: thinking about and with nonhuman spaces destabilizes human-scale assumptions. Bringing together new formalism, ecocriticism, and narrative theory, contributors demonstrate that literature can transgress the long-established boundary of the human frame.
