Rethinking the Environment for the Anthropocene

In the spirit of shameless self-promotion I’m delighted to announce the release by Routledge of a new collection of essays, edited by Manuel Arias-Maldonado and myself, entitled Rethinking the Environment for the Anthropocene: Political Theory and Socionatural Relations in the New Geological Epoch. The book grew out of a workshop of environmental political theorists held in 2016. It brings together work by both established and emerging scholars–some of whom contributed initial versions of their ideas to this blog.

This book brings together the most current thinking about the Anthropocene in the field of Environmental Political Theory (“EPT”). It displays the distinctive contribution EPT makes to the task of thinking through what “the environment” means in this time of pervasive human influence over natural systems. It will be of interest to scholars already engaged in EPT, but it will also serve as an introduction to the field for students of Political Theory, Philosophy, Environmental Studies, and related disciplines. The text will help readers interested in the Anthropocene from any disciplinary perspective develop a critical understanding of its political meanings.
