Book description

Towards a Cultural Politics of Climate Change provides a new perspective on how climate change matters in policy-making, business and everyday life. It argues that the work of low carbon transitions takes place through the creation of devices, the mobilisation of desires, and the articulation of dissent. Using case studies from the US, Australia, and Europe, the book examines the creation and contestation of new forms of cultural politics - of how a climate-changed society is articulated, realized and contested. Through this approach it opens up questions about how, where and by whom climate politics is conducted and the ways in which we might respond differently to this societal challenge. This book provides a key reference point for the emerging academic community working on the cultural politics of climate change, and a means through which to engage this new area of research with the broader social sciences.

Reviews

'Towards a Cultural Politics of Climate Change contains a collection of essays on the broad cultural dimensions of the climate discussion that engage with the question of resistance. They do so by emphasizing how deeply embedded energy consumption is in the cultures of modern states. There is considerable engagement with contemporary political and cultural theories in these pages. The dense conceptualizations in this text reflect the richly detailed analysis contained in the case studies.'
