A Lecture by Stacy Alaimo
Distinguished Teaching Professor, University of Texas – Arlington

Prof. Alaimo is an internationally recognized scholar of the environmental humanities and gender studies. She has published three monographs: Undomesticated Ground: Recasting Nature as Feminist Space (Cornell UP, 2000); Bodily Natures: Science, Environment, and the Material Self (Indiana UP, 2010); and Exposed: Environmental Politics and Pressures in Posthuman Times (U of Minnesota P, 2016). Bodily Natures won the ASLE (Association for the Study of Literature and the Environment) Award for Ecocriticism in 2011 and was featured in a special book session at the International Association of Environmental Philosophy in 2013. Alaimo also coedited Material Feminisms (Indiana UP 2008), and her edited collection Matter is forthcoming in 2017 (Macmillan). She is known for developing the concept of “trans-corporeality,” a concept widely in circulation and included as a key term in Rosi Braidotti’s The Posthuman Glossary (2017). Her current book project is entitled “Blue Ecologies: Science, Aesthetics, and the Creatures of the Abyss.”
