    Abstract: In The Future of Environmental Criticism, Lawrence Buell discusses the ecocritically nuanced terms and concepts space and place in the context of the late twentieth century and early twenty-first century phenomenon of globalization. In his argument he defends the spaces that associate with globalization, using a selection of literary writings to back up his claim. In this paper, I will question some of the assertions made by Buell in order to argue that attachment to place and the sense of place not only remain vital but are positive political acts of resistance to globalization. I rely on the arguments of Timothy Morton, Greg Garrard, Heather Eaton, Julian Murphet, and Vandana Shiva, before turning to Ishimure Michiko’s Lake of Heaven, Solar Storms by Native American writer Linda Hogan, and Spider Lilies, a film by the Taiwanese director Zero Chou, which vociferously defend particular, localized places against globalized spaces. Solar Storms is deeply concerned with the environmental racism against place that globalization both tacitly and explicitly endorses. Michiko uses Nob drama in a novel about the need to remain sensitivity to place as a means of learning from the past that place holds and preserves. In Spider Lilies, the trope of the tattoo represents the negative impact on humans of “non-places,” as well as nostalgia for a place in the hybridity of body ad language, in the context of virtually real, digital and other electronic spaces. In these works, we see a reevaluation of place and a vociferous defense of place against the spaces that encroach upon it.
