"A unique, wide-ranging collection edited by leading figures in the cross-disciplinary field of energy humanities. The contributions to this volume individually and collectively demonstrate the importance of understanding how the narratives surrounding energy shape policies as well as perceptions. Energy Humanities will help everyone from students to established scholars, concerned citizens, and policymakers see the problems associated with energy in a new way—potentially facilitating creative solutions."

"Individually and collectively, the contributors to this unique volume attest to the consensus gathering across disciplinary fields that we can only solve our current energy and environmental dilemmas by granting humanities research a significant role in the conversation. The editors have selected significant works featuring concepts and models from a broad range of disciplines which promise to inspire new ways of thinking rather than simply codify received understandings. These essays are uniquely suited to supply professors with the pedagogical resources—teaching tools, influential texts, research questions, protocols of reading, and methodological approaches—needed to frame and organize energy humanities courses."

"An excellent anthology that includes some of the best work in the field. Perfect for courses in energy humanities, ecocriticism, or environmental studies."

"Energy Humanities is an ambitious and stimulating collection that will assist the reader in understanding the importance of explicitly engaging with energy across the arts, humanities and social sciences. It is equally suited for undergraduate students and advanced academics who are interested in exploring the fecundity of interdisciplinary discussion and creative critique."

"While the collection serves scholars in offering an organization of a specific context that is still emerging, and will most likely keep growing in importance in the 21st century, this publication will most definitely prove useful as a way to introduce students to the questions of energy as a specific subfield of the arts, humanities and social sciences."

"Explore[s] ways of thinking and talking about the environment more creatively, aiming to circumvent our denial and despair, so that we may learn how to dwell on the things that are disappearing, and to carry on living in the world they leave behind."
