Issue 69 of ‘New Formations: A Journal of Culture/Theory/Politics’

Imperial Ecologies

Guest Editor: Ashley Dawson
New Formations 69 offers a timely and urgent set of contributions towards the development of ‘political ecology’. Despite a history of sporadic engagements, cultural theory and cultural studies has rarely dealt thoroughly with ecological issues, tending to retreat into its habitual scepticism regarding anything that might smell of naturalism. The fact that ecological questions frame all of the urgent political debates of our epoch, as well as animating some of the most dynamic areas of critical thought, surely means that this situation cannot continue. This collection begins to address the issues.
