Reimagining Sustainability in Precarious Times

This book reflects the considerable appeal of the Anthropocene and the way it stimulates new discussions and ideas for reimagining sustainability and its place in education in these precarious times. The authors explore these new imaginings for sustainability using varying theoretical perspectives in order to consider innovative ways of engaging with concepts that are now influencing the field of sustainability and education. Through their theoretical analysis, research and field work, the authors explore novel approaches to designing sustainability and sustainability education. These approaches, although diverse in focus, all highlight the complex interdependencies of the human and more-than-human world, and by unpacking binaries such as human/nature, nature/culture, subject/object and de-centring the human expose the complexities of an entangled human-nature relation that are shaping our understanding of sustainability. These messy relations challenge the well-versed mantras of anthropocentric exceptionalism in sustainability and sustainability education and offer new questions rather than answers for researchers, educators, and practitioners to explore. As working with new theoretical lenses is not always easy, this book also highlights the authors' methods for approaching these ideas and imaginings. Professor Karen Malone is a Professor of Sustainability at Western Sydney University's Centre for Educational Research. She has been sustainability thematic leader since the inception of theme leaders in CER over two years ago. She is an international expert on sustainable cities, children's environments, human rights, environmental education, education for sustainable development, and the sociology of childhood. She has predominantly conducted her research utilising socially critical and human geography theory, but in more recent times has been exploring posthumanism as a theoretical approach for framing her research.
