Abstract

The present essays included in Iperstoriaaddress the ways in which, now and in the past,the cultures developing along the coastlines, oceans and rivers of North America have been put in danger by reckless human behavior and decisions. The cultural texts that our contributors engage in are rich and diverse, and comprising different disciplines and methodological approaches. While some articles(by Parrish, Di Loreto and Wildermuth) examine the past, with its painful legacy of racism, colonialism and extraction, others (by Carosso, Dawson, Concilio, Luebken, Scarpino, and Zehelein) are critiques of contemporary environmental catastrophes and human damage.
