Call for Book Chapters: Sustainability and the City: Urban Poetics and Politics. April 1, 2015.

Lauren Curtright/Georgia Perimeter College

Conventional deployments of the term "sustainability" emphasize "avoiding the long-term depletion of natural resources," as the Oxford English Dictionary defines this word. However, the emergent idea of "comprehensive sustainability" considers the so-called natural environment and human politics in equal measure and means not only reconciling preservation and development but also achieving social justice and equality. Does this altered definition of sustainability mark or require a profound shift in perceptions of cities? Or might we trace concepts of sustainability in past ideas about cities?

Merwin and the Anthropocene, Deadline August 1, 2015

Friday, January 16, 2015 - 11:28am
Merwin Studies: Poetry | Poetics | Ecology

At the turn of the century, the term Anthropocene began gaining traction. Though still not formally accepted, the term suggests that the earth has moved into a new geological epoch due to the impact of human activities. That is, we have so impacted the earth that the human mark is written into its very geology, and will be present for epochs to come.

The Anthropocene, then, presents us with a reconception of our relationship with the earth. Like previous reconceptions (Galileo, Nasa's photograph of the Earth, Gaia), the Anthropocene prompts us toward an existential grappling with the implications of being human on this earth.
