Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

In Defense of Nature
by Kettler, Jenny, M.F.A., Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, 2020, 83; 27956594
Abstract (Summary)

Written as a call to action and response to a quickly changing climate this book is dedicated to the generation of caregivers and curious who will inherit the Earth. On the birth of the Anthropocene epoch – the time of humans – where nuclear waste and plastic are permanently imbedded into the bedrock of the Earth, Kettler asks if we can sustain the beauty and balance of the natural world by bringing forth an evolution of human consciousness.

“We might have left the natural world, most of us, but the natural world has not left us.”
