Roundtable and Reception.
Postgrowth Imaginaries (2018), by Luis I. Prádanos, explores cultural strategies that challenge the dominant economic imaginary and suggests that imagining postgrowth economic cultures is crucial for developing socially just responses to ecological crises. At this roundtable event scholars working in the environmental humanities will explore topics from Postgrowth Imaginaries and generate discussion on the significance of the environmental humanities in thinking, not just critically, but imaginatively about the global ecological crisis and the social and ecological failures of the growth paradigm. Topics discussed will include ecological economics, urban ecology, waste, nonhuman agency, and the pedagogy of catastrophe. What conceptual tools do the environmental humanities provide in thinking beyond growth?
