  • Ecorhetoric refers to ecocomposition studies to include ecocriticism, ecocomposition, and ecofeminism.
  • The field of ecocriticism, more commonly known as “nature writing,” includes literary works such as Emerson and Thoreau in the 19th Century and Rachel Carson in the 20th Century (See Cheryll Glotfelty).
  •  Ecocomposition refers to writing about the discourse that arises out of the human relationship to geography, place, setting, or location AND borrows concepts from ecology to guide the writing process (Dobrin and Weisser).The setting of ecocomposition can refer to interior or exterior settings such as the great outdoors, farms, parks, or it can refer to interior settings of the college campus, rural, suburban, or uban dwelling and places of social engagement; however, the primary focus of ecocomposistion is on the writing process as ecologically situated in a particular setting or in imaginative, metaphysical, and virtual reality forums.  Travel writing and place-based literary autobiographies are types of ecocompositions.  The motto of ecocomposition is “writing takes place.” (Ernst Haeckel qtd. in Dobrin and Weisser)
  • Ecofeminism addresses the issue of female relationship to all aspects of the natural world, with a particular emphasis on the female role as one that is often subjugated to male dominance in local and global ecosystems.
