    C. Parker Krieg, Paola Minoia

    Chapter from the book: Krieg C. & Toivanen R. 2021. Situating Sustainability: A Handbook of Contexts and Concepts.


    This chapter contextualizes the rise of Anthropocene discourse across academic disciplines and provides critical examples from think tanks and Indigenous strategies of political ecology. It illustrates the pitfalls and potential offered by this new periodization of anthropogenic change, and the definition of the anthropos that the term calls into question.
