Scott Slovic is professor of literature and environment and chair of the graduate program in literature and environment at the University of Nevada, Reno. The founding president of the Association for the Study of Literature and Environment (ASLE) from 1992 to 1995, he has edited ASLE's journal, ISLE: Interdisciplinary Studies in Literature and Environment, since 1995. Scott is the author of nearly 100 articles on environmental literature and ecocriticism and is author, editor, or coeditor of thirteen books, including Seeking Awareness in American Nature Writing (1992), Getting Over the Color Green (2001), The ISLE Reader (2003), What's Nature Worth?
