Quotes from these four 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.”

Paromita Patranobish writes in her review for the Journal of Ecohumanism: “The “justice-attentive aesthetic research practices” (p. 5) in Bloom’s book(chapters 4 and 5 co-written with Elena Glasberg) respond to the violence of visual foreclosure by foregrounding new ways of imagining contested spaces, highlighting industrial capitalist deployments of polar topographies that remain absent from representational parlance, and creating unconventional juxtapositions, continuities, and collaborations.”
