Critical Green Engagements
Critical Green Engagements: Investigating the Green Economy and Its Alternatives is a series that critically engages with the growing global advocacy of the “green economy” model for environmental stewardship and puts forth alternatives to discourses that dominate “green” practices. The series explores how different advocates, bystanders, and opponents engage with the changes envisaged by policy directives and environmental visions. It also examines which forms of social movements emerge from these ideologies and how social movement actors connect. The series showcases the rigorous, high-quality research and writing emerging in response to these transformations and channels the energies and skills of an international collection of leading environmental scholars.
The series editors seek single-authored texts and edited volumes that focus on the relationship between nature and our dominant cultural framework—the political economy of contemporary late capitalism—and highlight alternative, innovative, and constructive visions of human-nonhuman relationships and ways of being in the world. Series titles take such alternatives as points of departure from which ideologies of human/non-human relationships can be discussed. The series editors are also interested in works that speak to the practical challenges facing the people directly affected by conservation interventions. The intended audience includes scholars, students, policy makers, and activists.
