dc.description.abstractIn this experimental volume, researchers from Germany and Italy draw on autobiographical reflection to engage in environmental storytelling. From the translation of historical artifacts to reflections on the role of experience and memory in interpreting landscape change, this collection provides an exciting glimpse into the nature of environmental translation. Working across disciplines at the cutting edge of environmental humanities research, each essay probes the boundaries of its own historical context, questioning the ongoing dynamic between people and our finite planet.en
