Title: “This is [our] world now”: exploring the naturalcultural in final fantasy X
Authors: Eng, Nicholas Yong Zhi
Keywords: DRNTU::Humanities
Issue Date: 2017
Abstract: Within this thesis, I shall explore ecofeminism as a subset of ecocriticism, looking at how the portrayal of female characters deconstructs the essentialist binaries of male/female and nature/culture to resituate them as ‘natureculture’. Greg Garrard defines this as a theory that “attempts to circumvent the conventional duality of the two terms [nature, and culture], that make it up, [also suggesting] continual interpretation and mutual constitution of the human and non-human worlds” (208). Though ultimately unable to deconstruct these essentialist binaries, FFX suggests that it might indeed be possible in the future to implement a truly naturalcultural vision.
