This book series captures an emergent, expanding and important set of discussions on ‘planetary spaces’. It provides a home for cross-disciplinary and cutting-edge work that is attentive to the relations between planetary and extra planetary processes and human and more-than-human life.
We invite scholars from across the social sciences and humanities to publish their original and innovative work in a series that intends to be the ‘go to’ place for insights concerning planetary and extra-planetary spaces.
In a world of uncertainty, flux and transformation, the ‘planetary’ is becoming an ever-important framework for making sense of socio-cultural, economic, political and environmental change. As it becomes increasingly challenging to draw neat lines around economic crisis, environmental degradation, the reach of the urban, and geopolitical fall-out, the planetary provides a means of understanding the intersecting role of ‘worldly’, ‘earthly’ and ‘more-than-earthly’ matter and processes in relation to human and more-than-human life.
We are seeking proposals for research monographs, edited collections and where fitting, textbooks. We invite books based on rigorous empirical research and in-depth case studies, as well as novel and innovative theoretical developments on the theme. Possible topics include:
We are very happy to discuss any ideas for the series. If you are interested in writing or editing a book please contact us both:
