This project proposes and theorizes a new literary sub-genre of “decolonial outdoor counternarratives” that redefine the widespread notions of what it means to be “outdoorsy”. By presenting an alterNative, multi-species perspective on the outdoors and nature, they challenge the dominant notions about the outdoors and race, gender, and class, and contest conventional Western anthropocentric narratives that perpetuate environmental destruction and speciesism.
