Andrew Stones

Research

My research is situated at the intersection between world literature and the environmental humanities. I have published work on postcolonial and ecological politics, as well as contemporary continental philosophy, literature and ecology. My current projects focus on critical responses to climate change in world literature, the Anthropocene as literary and scientific concept, and the impact of the environmental humanities on theories of world literature. My doctoral research staged an encounter between world literature and the thought of Gilles Deleuze, using the concept of the line of flight (ligne de fuite) as a philosophical and methodological refrain.

Areas of interest related to the above include theories of world literature, ecological literature, the environmental humanities, philosophy of science, postcolonial studies and critical theory.

I am a member of the Association for the Study of Literature and Environment and the Postcolonial Studies Association (UK).
