We can thus think of the construction of a storyworld as an inherently comparative process, in which readers come to recognize the subtle and not-so-subtle differences between the world their physical bodies occupy and the world to which their mental energies are directed to by the reading process. 22 Toward Econarratology Econarratology and the Storyworld This book attempts to yoke together the fields of ecocriticism and narratology into a new mode of reading: econarratology. Econarratology embraces the key concerns of each of its parent discourses—it maintains an interest in studying the relationship between literature and the physical environment, but does so with sensitivity to the literary structures and devices that we use to communicate representations of the physical environment to each other via narratives.
9 DeLoughrey and Handley argue for a broader ecocritical genealogy that recognizes the differences between the environmental imagination of privileged subjects of the Northern Hemisphere and the environmentalism of the poor associated with the Global South. The more international genealogy they suggest includes Mahatma Gandhi and the 1970s Chipko movement in addition to Thoreau and the development of American national parks. DeLoughrey and Handley begin this project by highlighting the previously underappreciated environmental concerns inherent in the work of postcolonial thinkers and writers such as Edward Said, Frantz Fanon, Wilson Harris, Édouard Glissant, Chinua Achebe, Martin Carter, and Pablo Neruda.
But perhaps the most explicit turn toward the aesthetic in postcolonial ecocriticism is Upamanyu Pablo Mukherjee’s theorizing of “ecomaterialism” in Postcolonial Environments (2010). Mukherjee draws on Leon Trotsky’s theory of imperialism that argues that the extremes in rates of accumulation of foreign capital and extraction of natural resources and cheap labor in colonial and postcolonial spaces leads to the uneven formation of colonial and postcolonial environments. Mukherjee suggests that the radical unevenness of environments in late capitalism manifests itself formally in texts that display amalgamated cultural forms, such as a novel infused with folk theater 28 Toward Econarratology traditions, or poetry that contains allusions to classical music.
