Alumna Keira Hambrick, from the University of Nevada, Reno’s literature and environment program, was recently published in the anthology Environmentalism in the Realm of Science Fiction and Fantasy Literature, edited by Chris Barrata.

According to the description of the book, “The essays analyze important literary works to yield an understanding of how they address the environmental issues we are facing today and the solutions that these works present to ensure the sustainability of our natural world and, in turn, the sustainability of humanity. With topics ranging from the dangers of industrial progress to the connection between environmental degradation and the destruction of the individual, and from the environmental dangers posed by capitalistic societies to ignored warnings of ecological crises, the essays tactfully analyze the relationship between the environmental themes in literature and how readers and scholars can learn from the irresponsible treatment of the environment.” Check out the book on Amazon.com.
