“Explores and exemplifies ethnographically an emerging conceptual framework on ecological nostalgias to better understand the emotional impacts on and responses of people to the environmental crises that beset our world&rdquo. • Rajindra K. Puri, University of Kent

“It is a tour de force in showing what anthropology can contribute to thinking about the global ecological crisis, and why the cultural and political dimensions of this crisis are no less important than the material ones”. • Marc Brightman, University of Bologna


Introducing the study of econostalgias through a variety of rich ethnographic cases, this volume argues that a strictly human centered approach does not account for contemporary longings triggered by ecosystem upheavals. In this time of climate change, this book explores how nostalgia for fading ecologies unfolds into the interstitial spaces between the biological, the political and the social, regret and hope, the past, the present and the future.
