Fractured Ecologies participates in environmental praxis through literary practice. How does experimental writing contribute to the ways we think about ecology? This collection of papers, bent essays, and playful poetic impressions positions marginal aesthetic forms front and center. The idea of Fractured Ecologies is that rigorous and irreverent papers addressing experimental writing and other borderline manifestations in an environmental context are infinitely interesting and always fresh.
