Ruskin’s Ecologies: Figures of Relation from Modern Painters to the Storm-Cloud
Edited by Kelly Freeman and Thomas Hughes
An open-access book of fourteen essays by established and emerging writers that reconsider John Ruskin’s (1819–1900) teachings on art and architecture, his drawings, and scientific investigations—and the relations between such practices—in light of contemporary planetary concerns such as the life of things, conservation, and the role of art and imagination in negotiating human and other-than-human relations in an ever-imperiled world.
Essays by: Stephen Bann, Timothy Chandler, Kate Flint, Kelly Freeman, Lawrence Gasquet, Polly Gould, Thomas Hughes, Stephen Kite, Jeremy Melius, Ryan Roark, Nicholas Robbins, Courtney Skipton Long, Moran Sheleg, Giulia Weston.
