9781138830059: Emergent Possibilities for Global Sustainability: Intersections of race, class and gender (Routledge Advances in Climate Change Research)

It must be acknowledged that any solutions to anthropogenic Global Climate Change (GCC) are interdependent and ultimately inseparable from both its causes and consequences. As a result, limited analyses must be abandoned in favour of intersectional theories and practices.

Emergent Possibilities for Global Sustainability is an interdisciplinary collection which addresses global climate change and sustainability by engaging with the issues of race, gender, and class through an intersectional lens. The book challenges readers to foster new theoretical and practical linkages and to think beyond the traditional, and oftentimes reductionist, environmental science frame by examining issues within their turbulent political, cultural and personal landscapes. Through a variety of media and writing styles, this collection is unique in its presentation of a complex and integrated analysis of global climate change and its implications. Its companion book, Systemic Crises of Global Climate Change, addresses the social and ecological urgency surrounding climate change and the need to use intersectionality in both theory and practice.

This book is a valuable resource for academics, researchers and both undergraduate and post-graduate students in the areas of Environmental Studies, Climate Change, Gender Studies and International studies as well as those seeking a more intersectional analysis of GCC.

About the Author:

Phoebe Godfrey is an Assistant Professor-in-Residence at UCONN in sociology. She co-founded the non-profit CLiCK, in Willimantic, Connecticut, dedicated to a local sustainable food system.

Denise Torres is a doctoral candidate at the Graduate Center, City University of New York. The unifying theme of her work and publications is the authentic inclusion of silenced and marginalized groups in the systems that affect them.

Review:

"To achieve fair and sustainable futures, it will be essential to dissolve old hegemonic stereotypes like ‘womanhood' and ‘indigeneity’ and nourish the seeds of systemic change with marginal wisdoms. With honesty, acuity, passion, and hope, an international groundswell of authors calls theory back to praxis through inspirational verse and the joys of movement building."Ariel Salleh, author of "Ecofeminism as Politics"

"In Emergent Possibilities for Global Sustainability, Godfrey and Torres creatively link intersectionality theory to the concept of just sustainabilities to provide both a framework and new tools to analyze the dynamics of the different social and material worlds as evidenced by the diverse voices of their contributors." – Julian Agyeman, Professor of Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning, Tufts University.

"Across a diversity of situated perspectives and locations, this volume makes a strong and necessary argument for the importance of seeing environmental justice advocacy and feminist intersectional politics as intertwined, not to be separated neither in theory nor in practice. The volume gathers together many passionate voices of activists-scholars-poets committed to struggles for globally sustainable and just feminist futures. A timely and urgently needed intervention in debates on global climate change!"Nina Lykke, Professor of Gender Studies and co-director GEXcel Collegium for Advanced Transdisciplinary Gender Studies, Linkoeping University, Sweden

"Informed by intersectional frameworks of race, class and gender, the editors assemble a disparate and wide-ranging constellation of perspectives to imagine innovative possibilities for the future. Only junior scholars with passion and commitment could pull off such a tour-de-force of dedication, imagination and old-fashioned hard work. One of-a-kind, this unique and provocative volume raises a new bar for environmental activism." – Patricia Hill Collins, University of Maryland, College Park, USA
