About the series
his series addresses two trends: critical conversations in
academic fields about nature, sustainability, globalization,
and culture, including constructive engagements between the
natural, social, and human sciences; and intellectual and po-
litical conversations among social movements and other non-
academic knowledge producers about alternative practices and
socio-natural worlds. Its objective is to establish a synergy be-
tween these theoretical and political developments in both aca-
demic and non-academic arenas. This synergy is a sine qua non
for new thinking about the real promise of emergent ecologies.
The series includes works that envision more lasting and just
ways of being-in-place and being-in-networks with a diversity of
humans and other living and non-living beings.
New Ecologies for the Twenty-First Century aims to promote
a dialogue between those who are transforming the understand-
ing of the relationship between nature and culture. The series
revisits existing fields such as environmental history, historical
ecology, environmental anthropology, ecological economics,
and cultural and political ecology. It addresses emerging tenden-
cies, such as the use of complexity theory to rethink a range of
questions on the nature-culture axis. It also deals with epistemo-
logical and ontological concerns, building bridges between the
various forms of knowing and ways of being embedded in the
multiplicity of practices of social actors worldwide. This series
hopes to foster convergences among differently located actors
and to provide a forum for authors and readers to widen the fields
of theoretical inquiry, professional practice, and social struggles
that characterize the current environmental arena.
