Climate change is one of the most pressing issues of our times, yet also seemingly intractable. This book offers novel insights on this contemporary challenge, drawing together the state-of-the-art thinking in anthropology. Approaching climate change as a nexus of nature, culture, science, politics, and belief, the book reveals nuanced ways of understanding the relationships between society and climate, science and the state, certainty and uncertainty, global and local that are manifested in climate change debates. The contributors address three major areas of inquiry: how climate change issues have been framed in previous times compared to the present; how knowledge about climate change and its impacts is produced and interpreted by different groups; and how imagination plays a role in shaping conceptions of climate change.
Jessica Barnes is assistant professor, Department of Geography and Environment and Sustainability Program, University of South Carolina. She lives in Columbia, SC. Michael Dove is Margaret K. Musser Professor of Social Ecology and Professor of Anthropology at Yale University. He lives in Killingworth, CT.
