The editors of Invisible Culture are pleased to announce the back-to-school release of
ISSUE 9: Nature Loving
Edited by Lisa Uddin and Peter Hobbs
As Raymond Williams aptly remarked, “the idea of nature contains an extraordinary amount of human history” – so too, we submit, does the love of nature.
Nature Loving includes essays by Catriona Mortimer-Sandilands, Melissa Aronczyk, Matthew Roth, Gary Genosko, and Matthew Brower. Together the five authors examine various aesthetic and political conditions through which it becomes possible, desirable, or obligatory to get close to nature. While each essay considers the political and philosophical implications of this proximity, they do so without undermining the joys of wading through the wonderful world of animals, plants and habitats. Indeed, the essays in this issue suggest some of the benefits of staying emotionally and physically connected to these natures, however culturally specific the connection proves to be.
Also included in the issue are four new book reviews.

Issue designed and uploaded by Aviva Dove-Viebahn, Lisa Uddin and Peter Hobbs.
