Short Abstract:

This panel will explore plural perspectives of sustainability, including relational, affect and indigenous ways of seeing and the implications of these perspectives on socio-natures for the ethics and politics of actions in the anthropocene.

Long Abstract:

A potentially paradigmatic shift is emerging with respect to understandings of sustainability. Having moved beyond sustainable development, to a fuzzy focus on sustainability, there is now increased critique of the dominance of sustainability sciences and Cartesian distinctions (mind-body; human-nature etc), and of the need for increased space for a plurality of values and perspectives underpinning notions of sustainability, and the imperative of an ethics of engagement and political struggle via transdisciplinary and transformative approaches. The implications are far reaching for researchers and practitioners. This panel aims to contribute papers which critically interrogate the potential contribution of concepts and frameworks from thinking on dynamics systems, relationality, indigenous cosmologies and research frameworks, political ecology, affect and emotions, and arts- and communal-based enquiry in guiding and navigating the messy, challenging politics and ethics of sustainability encounters. The aim is to co-develop a publication or special issue based on these contributions.
