Perspectives is a bilingual double-blind peer-reviewed, annual E-journal published by Janki Devi Memorial College, University of Delhi with eISSN 2583 - 4762. 

Recent dramatic and catastrophic climatic events have brought the issue of climate change and sustainable development to the forefront of scholarship. It is being increasingly recognised that any meaningful understanding of and progress against this impending ecological crisis requires a significant engagement with the intersectionality of the environment and diverse material, ideal and practical processes. Any discussion must therefore recognise the need for an ecological dialogue between society and the environment and must take into account not only the geopolitical practices but also the socio-cultural processes which have led to the current ecological decline. Furthermore, scholars, planners and policy makers alike must focus attention on the global south and engage with the prevailing inequalities and realities that have arisen from historical and ideological processes aimed at capitalist domination and modernity. Thus while engaging with the issue of climate catastrophe it is imperative to remember the past, while imagining a future which is progressive, diverse and inclusive. The post-industrial developmental ethos which drove the Anthropocene era, must also be questioned, albeit with caution. 

We invite original and unpublished research papers and review articles from various disciplines of Humanities, Languages and Social Sciences on the theme of Climate change and sustainability for publication in the forthcoming issue to be released in May 2024.
