Environments, Natures and Social Theory: Towards a Critical Hybridity
Environments, Natures and Social Theory: Towards a Critical Hybridity (Palgrave Macmillan, 2015) just came out today in paperback.
Drawing environmental sociology and geography in human and political ecology, cyborg feminism, ANT and environmental justice studies the core argument of the book suggest that the old two-dimensional environmental debate (limits/no limits/catastrophe/cornucopia) has exhausted itself as a productive frame of reference. We need to move beyond Malthus, romanticism, free market fanaticism and tired old contrarianism. Rather attention needs to turn to socio-ecological hybridities, justice, power, possibility and reconstruction..
