Ecological Literacy in an Egyptian Short Story

Abstract [en]

This article explores a way in which an urban society in the Arab world may respond to an ecosystem by acquiring a measure of ecological literacy (eco-literacy) in a short story by an Egyptian author. Guided by David W. Orr’s concept of ecological literacy (1992) and eco-literacy (Amy Cutter Mackenzie and Richard Smith, 2003) we observe in which way this short story expresses awareness of ecological interrelatedness and an attitude of care and stewardship towards nature. With Christopher Manes (1996) and Don Kulick (1917) we  argue that an environmental ethics which speaks on the behalf of nature and empathetic engagement with life beyond the human emerge.
