In this article, we present Toxic Bios, a public environmental humanities project which aims to co-produce, gather, and make visible stories of contamination and resistance. In order to explain the rationale of the project and its potentialities, first we offer a brief reflection on the field of the environmental humanities and its (possible) contribution to environmental justice research, then, we illustrate the guerrilla narrative strategy experimented through the project.
