Packing Death in Australian Literature: Ecocides and Eco-Sidesaddresses Australian Literature from ecocritical, animal studies, plant
studies, indigenous studies, and posthumanist critical perspectives. The
book's main purpose is twofold: to bring more sustained attention to environmental,
vegetal, and animal rights issues, past and present, and to
do that from within the discipline of literary studies. Literary studies in
Australia continue to reflect disinterest or not enough interest in critical
engagements with the subjects of Australia's oldest extant environments
and other beings beside humans. Packing Death in Australian Literature:
Ecocides and Eco-Sides foregrounds the vegetal and nonhuman
animal populations and contours of Australian Literature. Critical studies
relied on in Packing Death in Australian Literature: Ecocides and
Eco-Sides include books by CA. Cranston and Robert Zeller, Simon C.
Estok, Bill Gammage, Timothy Morton, Bruce Pascoe, Val Plumwood,
Kate Rigby, John Ryan, Wendy Wheeler, and Cary Wolfe. The selected
literary texts include work by Merlinda Bobis, Eric Yoshiaki Dando,
Nugi Garimara, Francesca Rendle-Short, Patrick White, and Evie Wyld.
