She is author of The Ecological Other: Environmental Exclusion in American Culture (University of Arizona Press, 2013), which considers ways in which environmental ideas have been used for purposes of social control and oppression in the US. She has co-edited two collections: Critical Norths: Space, Nature, Theory (University of Alaska Press) and Disability Studies and the Environmental Humanities: Toward an Eco-Crip Theory (University of Nebraska Press), both published this year.

Ray is working on two new scholarly projects: a co-edited volume titled Latinx Literary Environmentalisms: Justice, Place, and the Decolonial, and a book that argues that environmental studies and science instructors need to take students’ emotions about climate change and social injustice seriously in the classroom: Coming of Age in the Anthropocene: Climate Justice Pedagogies and Affective Resilience.

Organized by the Anthropocene crossdisciplinary research cluster of the Simpson Center for the Humanities.
