Zoophytography: Animals and Plants in Amazonian Cultural Productions.
 Gainesville: The University Press of Florida, 2022.

 

This book focuses on texts, films and artworks that depict the Amazon river basin, a region known for its biodiversity that is being threatened by extractivist industries and large-scale forest fires. The main argument is that non-human beings leave traces of themselves in human cultural productions, becoming co-creators of books, cinema and art that portray Amazonian fauna and flora. The book uncovers these vegetal and animal inscriptions, thus decentering humanity as the sole source of meaning-making, and gives voice to and seeks to learn from non-human beings.
