Quotes from these three authors

Alice Oates’  from Cambridge University in H-Environment: “This is a book capable of expanding a reader’s understanding whether they are drawn to it from the worlds of art, activism, critical scholarship, or some combination thereof. Connecting what is often separated, Climate Change and the New Polar Aesthetics is a vital read for artists, activists, and academics alike.”

Barbara Ann Opar writes in her review for the Arts Libraries Society of North America: “Bloom’s scholarship makes an important contribution to the literature for institutions with graduate programs and/or libraries which aim to include diverse views of the global environmental crisis.”

Elizabeth Berman from Brown University writes: “In presenting polar regions not merely as the presumed “ground zero of catastrophic climate change” (57) but as inhabited, vibrant sites intimately entangled with the rest of the globe, Climate Change and the New Polar Aesthetics marks an important intervention in aesthetic and environmental criticism.”
