CFP on “Decolonial Ecosophy: A Deliberative Encounter with Indian and non-western Eco-Theologies”

By Saswat S. Das and Ananya Roy Pratihar  A call for the Journal of Ecohumanism, Issue 2, invites contributions working to extend ecosophy through decolonial networks, intersecting with Indian and other non-western eco-theologies. The dense interplay between the multiple strands of eco-criticality in the current times that effectively exposes the ambivalences of state machinery’s eco-political intervention culminates in yielding ecosophical assemblages that works with a new ‘conceptual grammatology’, a grammatology that could be turned into an effective praxis to bring about multiple forms of eco-healing […]

The unequal university will never be ‘sustainable’

By Ana Diaz Vidal, Clara Freudenberg, Isabelle Darmon. Through green rankings and strategies for sustainability and climate virtue, universities attract and reproduce wealth, driving high consumption – paradoxically exacerbating climate change and unsustainability.

A Call for Papers on Militant Ecologies

In her 1968 Revolutionary Letters, Diane di Prima issued an all-caps injunction: “BLOW UP THE PETROLEUM LINES.” “Make the cars / into flower pots or sculptures or live / in the bigger ones,” she suggests, “why not?” Increasingly, di Prima’s resonant question – “why not?” – resurfaces in environmentalism’s re-engagement with tactics of militant direct action and lineages of anti-colonial struggle, reflected in a critical turn towards histories of insurrection, re-occupation, and pipeline resistance. Alongside di Prima’s incitement to infrastructural sabotage is the more irreverent […]
