Laura Auricchio on Invaluable Trees

Laura Auricchio’s collaborative research project into tree studies has culminated in a volume entitled,  Invaluable Trees: Cultures of Nature, 1660-1830. With contributions from a vast array of scholarship, including environmental and forest history, ecocriticism, post-colonial criticism, visual and material culture, ecomusicology, English literature, and French literature and culture, the volume will be released in August 2012 by  Oxford: Voltaire Foundation.

To read an interview with Dr. Auricchio, including shifting views of nature, the collaborative writing process, research funding, and a new course she’ll be teaching in fall 2012, please visit the Provost’s Office’s piece, On Trees and Arboreal Values.
