New Virtual Exhibition: Toxic Relationships

Modern societies’ hazardous by-products cast a dark shadow over the planet. This new virtual exhibition gives you an insight into the obscure world of hazardous waste, its questionable trade across the globe, and the people successfully fighting for safe and just waste management.

The Hazardous Travels research team takes you on a journey to the edges of our societies that many prefer not to see.

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.
