Co-editors include Brian Treanor of Loyola Marymount University, Martin Drenthen of Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands, and David Utsler, a PhD candidate at the University of North Texas.
Clingerman is also author of the book’s chapter “Memory, Imagination, and the Hermeneutics of Place" and co-author of the introduction. The book is the first collection of essays that explore how the study of interpretation relates to environmental philosophy.
