Greta Gaard is Professor of English and served as Founding Coordinator of the Sustainability Faculty Fellows at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls (2015-2019). Her scholarship and teaching emerge from the intersections of student-centered pedagogy, antiracist feminisms, environmental justice, queer ecologies and critical animal studies, exploring a wide range of issues, from postcolonial ecofeminism to children’s environmental literature, and the ecopolitics of climate change. Gaard has served on the Executive Council for the Association for the Study of Literature and Environment (ASLE), and on the editorial board for the organization’s journal, Interdisciplinary Studies in Literature and Environment (ISLE) since 1995. Author or editor of six books of ecocriticism and feminist praxis, Gaard anchors her most recent volume, Critical Ecofeminism (2017), in Australian ecophilosopher Val Plumwood’s foundational work. Gaard’s current research advances conversations across the fields of critical ecofeminism and climate justice, Mindfulness pedagogy, Happiness Studies and Writing Pedagogy, and the Environmental Humanities.
