Summary:
"Latinx Environmentalisms brings the environmental humanities into dialogue with Latinx literary and cultural studies. By considering how Latinx cultures are environmental but often refuse to identify as environmentalist, the volume explores the possibilities and challenges of Latinx environmental representations, especially how they broaden environmental justice to address decolonial frameworks"-- Provided by publisher.
