Abstract: Through the interplay of the creative and the critical-in which both modes of ecological writing exist side by side, in exchange with one another-Thinking Continental presents a timely and distinct contribution to the blossoming of the environmental humanities. The volume consists of three parts, Ground Truths, Watershed Ways and Planetary Currents, each of which ends with a lyrical coda of poems from leading writers on environment, ecology, place, region and the nonhuman. Cross-disciplinary and, moreover, cross-genre, Thinking Continental enlarges the spectrum of recent theoretical work in the environmental humanities, notably Robert Emmett and David Nye's The Environmental Humanities: A Critical Introduction and Ursula Heise, Jon Christensen and Michelle Niemann's The Routledge Companion to the Environmental Humanities, both works published in 2017.
