Theme Issue: Affirmative Political Ecology
The Geographical Society of Northern Finland and the Geography Research Unit at the University of Oulu are inviting contributors to the Nordia Geographical Publications Series 24th Yearbook coming out in late 2018.
In the midst of unprecedented ecological devastation and political-economic violence, there is no lack of bad news. “We” are globally in trouble, yet these troubles transpire unevenly in terms of geography, location and context. Now, more than ever, there is need to embrace the critically important role of political ecology as a field of research and activism for other realities and as an ensemble of “arts of living on a damaged planet” (Tsing et al. 2017). Striving towards the performance of other diverse possibilities (Roelvink et al. 2015), we want to make this Nordia Yearbook a space for thinking collectively about what affirmative political ecology is and what it could and should mean.Read more about Call for Papers: Nordia Geographical Publications Yearbook 2018
