Some climate change ironies : deconstruction, environmental politics, and the closure of ecocriticism.

Clark, Timothy (2010) 'Some climate change ironies : deconstruction, environmental politics, and the closure of ecocriticism.', Oxford literary review., 32 (1). pp. 131-149.

Abstract

This paper considers the deconstructive force of climate change in intellectual and political and intellectual life, especially as its undermines and challenges the terms of consumer democracy and the liberal tradition in political thought. The first half of the paper gauges this deconstructive force in relation to Derrida’s legacy, arguing that environmental questions open, as it were, an arena of deconstructive events foreclosed in Derrida’s own work. The second half considers the deconstructive force of climate change in relation to literary ecocriticism, the study of literature and the environment. .
