Long Abstract

The anthropocene signifies consciousness of the geological scale of human impact on planetary systems. It also has profound implications for imminent, local relationships between people and non-human nature, and for social, political and technological arrangements. This panel explores trauma and renewal in the reconfiguration of ecological relationships that characterise the anthropocene. Addressing environmental disasters, conservation conflict, urban innovation, resource management and production, the papers explore how ecological disruption reinscribes and disrupts structures and practices of power and knowledge.
