After the Death of Nature: On the Influence of Carolyn Merchant

Join editor Ken Worthy and several other contributors, including Elizabeth Allison, Nancy Unger, and Susan Griffin, as they discuss their anthology of essays on Carolyn Merchant*s work, legacy, and influence..

We expect the presence of Carolyn Merchant herself

Published in 1980, The Death of Nature: Women, Ecology, and the Scientific Revolution established Merchant as a pioneering researcher of human-nature relations. Her subsequent groundbreaking writing in a dozen books and over one hundred peer-reviewed articles have only fortified her position as one of the most influential scholars of the environment. This book examines and builds upon her decades-long legacy of innovative environmental thought and her critical responses to modern mechanistic and patriarchal conceptions of nature and women as well as her systematic taxonomies of environmental thought and action.
