Abstract [en]

The chapter explores the link between environmental history and migration studies by analyzing the case of Italian miners in Wallonia after the World War II. Employing and Environmental Humanities approach, we use poems and novels to analyze the ecological shift operated by the capitalistic organization of coal extraction and how this affected the socio-environmental structure of the Walloon landscape and its relationship with the people who inhabited it. We aim to demonstrate how workers' bodies are a key element of the interaction between nature and society, constituting a vantage point to acces subaltern ecologies.
