Environmental crisis is more than a passing phase; it is the modern condition. Thus environmental issues remain controversial and topical, and ecocriticism is one of the most vibrant fields of literary and cultural study today. From its origins in the study of nature writing and Romantic literature, it has extended into every period, region and genre of cultural analysis. Teaching Ecocriticism and Green Cultural Studies captures the diversity and excitement of green reading, including contributions on digital media, film, climate change and digital media. It reflects on the relationship of 'slow reading' to the haste and commercialism of the modern academy, and provides practical guidance for dealing with the specific difficulties that face teachers in the field: the problem of global scale; interdisciplinary links with ecology; and the debilitating attitudes of some students: corrosive irony, scepticism or apathy. It is an invaluable toolkit for teachers in the environmental humanities.
