PAMLA member Kevin Hutchings produced a new monograph, a new co-edited collection, and a new CD in 2009: 

Romantic Ecologies and Colonial Cultures in the British Atlantic World, 1770-1850.
Montreal and Kingston: McGill-Queen’s University Press, 2009.

This book highlights significant intersections between Green Romanticism and colonial politics, demonstrating how Romantic-era understandings of animality, climate, and habitat informed literary and cross-cultural debates about race, slavery, colonialism, and nature in the British Atlantic world.  Further information about this title may be found on the McGill-Queen’s University Press website at
