The Domestic Turn in Environmental Literature

(p.91) Chapter 3 Res Nullius
Ecology without Culture

Christine L. Marran

University of Minnesota Press

This chapter introduces the concept of a “domestic turn” in ecocritical poetry and fiction that consciously demands that biotropes refuse the rural and urban dialectic. Representation under what I call this “domestic turn” in ecocritical writing in the production of biotropes conveys a deep sense of vulnerability of humans, plants and animals to contamination that goes beyond the familiar rural/urban dialectic.
