Abstract: Materialist and post-humanist scholarship within the discipline has opened up exciting philosophical and theoretical possibilities with which to understand both human and nonhuman worlds. Yet, recent scholarship has been critical of the modern secular tendencies within this approach especially in its lack of engagement with sacred, sentient, and spiritual accounts and experiences. This review draws on perspectives from literary fiction, the subfields of indigenous and religious geographies and disciplines like anthropology, religious studies, and post-colonial studies to highlight these absences and spaces for meaningful engagement.
