The Critical Climate Studies book series is located in the transdisciplinary space that cross-cuts the social sciences, humanities, creative writing, environmental studies, and climate science. Scholarship and activism are powerful but often invisible global forces, trapped in the interstices. We seek to draw attention and analysis to such domains. The series welcomes short books that experiment with holistic engagement, critique, and conversation about climate change, broadly conceived. In addition to nuanced academic prose from all disciplines, the series embraces multi-genre writing, experimental ethnographies, creative non-fiction, lyrical sociology, ficto-critical writing, as well as science-humanities collaborations. We encourage contributions that are investigative, immersive, and attentive to the understudied and obscured planetary transformations taking hold as climate change accelerates. Our interests lie in large debates as well as in the understudied regions and microhistories of the world, where the impact of the planet’s climate convulsions generate altered experiences and analyses of ontologies, geographies, ecologies, and political economies.
