Submissions sought for “World Turning: Race, Class, Gender, and Global Climate Change”

Be part of a new edited volume addressing global climate change, tentatively titled World Turning: Race, Class, Gender, and Global Climate Change! For this unique volume, (publisher to be confirmed once submissions are), we are seeking contributions from academics and activists with experience and expertise in addressing the social dimensions of global climate change in their work, with a particular focus on intersections of race, class, gender, and other social markers.

World Turning is intended to be a multidisciplinary reader that will introduce undergraduate and graduate students to the major issues and debates surrounding the study of intersectionality and global climate change. The volume will be broadly organized into sections on the social and natural sciences, as well as public health, art and literature.

Specifically, we are seeking essays or articles between 15-25 pages (including notes) that address any aspect of climate change: legal, political, social, educational, agricultural, economic, religious, sexual, ideological, international, local, etc. and that incorporate an intersectional analysis. In addition, we are seeking original essays, poetry, investigative reporting or other creative works (including art) that also address climate change in relation to any form of activism. Contributions may be visual, empirical, theoretical or any other creative form, and may be between 1-20 pages (including notes).

Preference will be given to original pieces but we may also consider previously published pieces.

If you are interested in contributing, please submit a 500 word abstract of your piece (or details / examples of your art / activism) with the title, author, and institutional or organizational affiliation (if any) to Dr. Phoebe Godfrey at, or Medani Prasad Bhandari or Dr. Rachel Hallum-Montes at or Dr. Shangrila Joshi by March 1st, 2012.
