Stacy Alaimo is Professor of English, Distinguished Teaching Professor, and Director of the Environmental and Sustainability Studies program in the College of Architecture, Planning, and Public Affairs, where she has a joint appointment. She served as the Academic co-chair for the UTA President’s Sustainability Committee from 2009-2011, and is one of three faculty who initiated the cross-disciplinary Environmental and Sustainability Studies Minor, which she has directed since 2011. She has served on the MLA Division of Literature and Science, the inaugural committee of the new MLA forum for Ecocriticism and the Environmental Humanities, and the prestigious international evaluation panel for Sweden’s major environmental humanities program grant competition. She is internationally recognized as a leading scholar in the environmental humanities, science studies, environmental theory and cultural studies, and has given invited talks and plenary presentations across the U.S., Canada, and Europe. She has more than 40 scholarly articles and chapters published and forthcoming on such topics as the paradigm of sustainability, gender and climate change, the anthropocene, ocean conservation, material ecocriticism, and new materialist theory–including her concept of “transcorporeality,” which is widely cited. Her books include Undomesticated Ground: Recasting Nature as Feminist Space (Cornell 2000); Bodily Natures: Science, Environment, and the Material Self (Indiana 2010), which won the Association for the Study of Literature and Environment (ASLE) book award for ecocriticism, and the influential collection Material Feminisms (Indiana 2008), which she co-edited. She is currently editing Matter for the Gender series of MacMillian Interdisiciplinary Handbooks, and is writing two books, Protest and Pleasure: New Materialism, Environmental Activism, and Feminist Exposure and Blue Ecologies: Science, Aesthetics, and the Creatures of the Abyss. Her current research focuses on ocean conservation and the representation of newly discovered deep sea creatures. She is also interested in working on cross-disciplinary collaborations focused on environmental health, environmental justice, urban ecologies, and other topics.
