Junctures, the Journal for Thematic Dialogue.

The incremental but accelerating recognition of climate change is in itself a feature of the complexity of the subject. The implications of small events on large-scale transformation ask urgently for the interdisciplinary conversation, as does the emotional impact of climate change, with its spectrum of grief, anger, resilience and pragmatism.

Models that coalesce under the term 'sustainability' call for understanding from the more holistic approaches to relations between the non-human and the human. The impact of human development on the environment has led to the characterisation of this age as the Anthropocene.

It seems perhaps that the very idea of “nature” reflects the dissociated approach endemic to the destruction of the non-human world and the place of humans within it.

Understandings of the planet as a complex system with its own agency are reflected in the many models characterised by the term “sustainability”.

Junctures seeks material on the following:

  • Theoretical approaches to climate change
  • Art/science collaborations
  • Approaches to climate change that engage with its emotional impact
  • Specific case studies of change
