Dramatic anthropogenic transformation of the natural world is nothing new, and nor is climate violence, with its uneven distribution along lines of race, class and gender. Yet have the effects ever been more inescapable? Has the regime of extraction and exploitation that subtends it all ever been less tenable? What are we to do as academics – ourselves perhaps increasingly precarious, marginal or insupportably luxurious? What are you doing, in your academic work, teaching and professional life? What should happen next? Join us for a round table discussion and open forum.
