Sergio Ruiz Cayuela's co-authored an article on a public environmental humanities project that aims to co-produce, gather, and make visible stories of contamination. The article was published in the Environmental Justice journal.
In the article (Toxic Bios: Toxic Autobiographies—A Public Environmental Humanities Project), the authors present Toxic Bios, a public environmental humanities project that aims to co-produce, gather, and make visible stories of contamination and resistance.The project aims to foster environmental justice (EJ) through enhancing narrative justice, contrasting toxic narratives, and uncovering unheard stories. Throughout the article, they place Toxic Bios within the larger field of the environmental humanities, suggesting a series of areas in which it can contribute to the EJ field. More broadly, they suggest that the Toxic Bios platform not only provides empirical materials for scholars working on EJ but they also offer the guerrilla narrative practice as a tool to EJ scholars interested in environmental humanities-oriented co-research. The aim is to prove that environmental humanities scholars can contribute to EJ research and struggles. Congrats, Sergio! Read the article here.
