Duckert, Lowell

  • Lowell Duckert (University of Delaware) specializes in early modern literature and the blue humanities. He has published on various topics such as glaciers, polar bears, the color maroon, rain, fleece, mining, and lagoons. With Jeffrey Jerome Cohen, he is the editor of Elemental Ecocriticism: Thinking with Earth, Air, Water, and Fire; and Veer Ecology: A Companion for Environmental Thinking (2015). His book For All Waters: Finding Ourselves in Early Modern Wetscapes (University of Minnesota Press, 2017) examines how playwrights and travel writers who physically interacted with rivers, glaciers, monsoons, and swamps, composed "hydrographies," or bodily and textual assemblages of human and nonhuman things that dissolved notions of human autonomy and its singular narrativity. Lowell Duckert is currently completing his book under contract with the University of Minnesota Press called Cold Doings: Early Modern Actions for Our Warmer World – an experimental project in which he shows his interest for cold art through a series of "winterludes".
