New Issue of Perspectives: Strata and Three Stories

Based on their tandem lecture at the RCC’s 10th anniversary celebration, Julia Adeney Thomas and Jan Zalasiewicz return to explore the Anthropocene and the narratives that are driving the trajectories of the Earth System. The collaborative issue "Strata and Three Stories" is to be the final issue of the much-loved series RCC Perspectives: Transformations in Environment and Society. With their captivating (and oft unsettling) narratives, this call for multidisciplinarity will resonate across scholarly divides.

New Special Issue of Global Environment

The volume "The Environmental and Ecological Impacts of Guerrilla and Irregular Warfare," edited by Javier Puente, starts the conversation about "unconventional" conflicts and the ecological and environmental “disruptions” they result in. Focusing on examples from the Global South, the authors examine the complexities of guerrilla warfare, internal strife, and other domestic experiences of state and sociopolitical violence.
