Drawing on scholarship in the environmental humanities and practice-oriented research in education and literature pedagogy, this book introduces the notion of ‘educational ecology’ as a necessary and promising pedagogic principle for the teaching of Anglophone literatures and cultures in a time of climate change. Its seven chapters address the challenges of climate change and the demand for sustainability and environmental pedagogy from the specific perspective of literary and cultural studies and education, arguing that these perspectives constitute a crucial element of the transdisciplinary effort of ‘cultivating sustainability.’ The notion of an ‘educational ecology’ takes full advantage of the necessarily dialogic and co-constitutive nature of sustainability-related pedagogical philosophy and practice while it retains the subject-specific focus of research and education in the humanities, focused on and excelling in critical thinking, perspective diversity, language and discourse awareness, and the literary and cultural constructions of meaning.
