A Keener Appreciation: Ecocritical Studies in American Art History by Brand: University Alabama Press
Product Description

A landmark collection of essays on the intersections of visual art, cultural studies, and environmental history in America.

Issues of ecology—both as they appear in the works of nature writers and in the works of literary writers for whom place and the land are central issues—have long been of interest to literary critics, and have given rise over the last two decades to the now firmly established field of ecocriticism. The essays in this volume, written by art historians and literary critics, seek to bring the study of American art into the expanding discourse of ecocriticism.

A Keener Perception offers a series of case studies on topics ranging from John White’s watercolors of the Carolina landscape executed during Sir Walter Raleigh’s 1585 Roanoke expedition to photographs by environmental activist Eliot Porter. Rather than merely resurrect past instances of ecologically attuned art, this volume features essays that resituate many canonical figures, such as Thomas Eakins, Aaron Douglas, and Isamu Noguchi, in an ecocritical light by which they have yet to be viewed. Studying such artists and artworks through an ecocritical lens not only provides a better understanding of these works and the American landscape, but also brings a new interpretive paradigm to the field of art history—a field that many of these critics believe would do well to embrace environmental concerns as a vital area of research.

In highlighting the work of scholars who bring ecological agendas to their study of American art, as well as providing models for literary scholars who might like to better incorporate the visual arts into their own scholarship and teaching,A Keener Perception is truly a landmark collection—timely, consequential, and controversial.

Elizabeth Twp. makes space for Warwick Little League - Lititz Record Express

Warwick Taste League is interested in using the Elizabeth Township Park ball fields for games and tournaments in the future since the Wilbur fields in Lititz will no longer be close by. The subject was discussed Monday night during the Elizabeth Township supervisors meeting. The sale of the former chocolate factory real estate and its proposed development into apartments means that the baseball fields located there must go. The major and minor level teams need to stumble on other fields for games and tournaments after this... Elizabeth Township Park has two ball fields, one with 60-foot bases and the other with 80-foot bases. Unimaginative League uses 60-foot bases. Spencer Todd, Little League president, asked liberty to add an outfield fence to the smaller field so that it can be used for tournaments as well as for local games. The field is currently tempered to as a practice field for Little League teams. The larger field has some wet areas in the center and left field areas that will call to be addressed. Todd said the league would also like to bring some spectator seating and an equipment shed, from the Wilbur complex, to the estate. Supervisor Chairman Brian Wiker had some concerns about financing, and Todd assured him that Little League is “willing to return an investment. Wiker said those who rent the park pavilion also need access to the fields, so he wants to be sure that the fields are not monopolized by Sparse League. Todd said that league field use is scheduled by Maria Tivoli at the Lititz recCenter. She also schedules the reserve pavilion use, so he does not see a problem with scheduling games around pavilion rentals. For practices, one team uses a field. With two ball games at the same dated, the 115 parking spaces should be adequate. Todd agreed that the park would be very full if there happened to be two baseball games and two soccer games usual on at the same time. Following the discussion, supervisors approved a motion to allow Warwick Little League to prepare Field One at Elizabeth Township Reserve for baseball games. Elizabeth Township supervisors discussed the preliminary plans July 10 showing proposed Tractor Afford Company and Dollar General stores at the southwest corner of the intersection of Routes 501 and 322. The land is zoned for “highway commercial”... Source:
