A book recently written by Alicia Carroll, associate professor of English, has been placed on Yale Climate Connections list of 15 books about women leading the way on climate change.

Carroll's book, New Woman Ecologies: From Arts and Crafts to the Great War and Beyond, has been added to the list for exploring the early green culture of Arts and Crafts to women’s formation of rural utopian communities, the Women’s Land Army, and herbalists of the Great War and beyond. Carroll's book shows how women established both their own autonomy and the viability of an ecological modernity.

The Yale Climate Connections list is procured annually to observe Women’s History Month and to present a selection of new and recent titles about how women’s lives will be affected by climate change, and how women are changing the politics and prospects for action.
