About this Textbook

This textbook introduces advanced students of International Relations (and beyond) to the ways in which the advent of, and reflections on, the Anthropocene impact on the study of global politics and the disciplinary foundations of IR. The book contains 24 chapters, authored by senior academics as well as early career scholars, and is divided into four parts, detailing, respectively, why the Anthropocene is of importance to IR, challenges to traditional approaches to security, the question of governance and agency in the Anthropocene, and new methods and approaches, going beyond the human/nature divide.

Reviews

“This is a ground-breaking book on the wider intimations of the Anthropocene for thinking International Relations differently. Written in an accessible style, it covers an impressive array of theoretical and substantive topics, including planetary thinking, Posthumanism, environmental security, Decolonial and Queerfeminist thought, governance and new epistemologies. A superb collection of original essays, International Relations in the Anthropocene is likely to serve as a standard reference on the theme of the Anthropocene in the field of International Relations.” (Mustapha Kamal Pasha, Chair in International Politics, Aberystwyth University, UK)

“This textbook provides a sophisticated yet highly accessible overview of the myriad facets of what is described as the Anthropocene condition. By shifting our analytical gaze towards a planetary approach rooted in transdisciplinary knowledges and methodologies, it challenges the ways in which world affairs have customarily been conceived, analyzed and taught. International Relations in the Anthropocene offers a priceless resource for those who seek a comprehensive ‘one-stop’ source of concepts, themes and approaches for understanding and addressing our current existential crisis.” (Arlene B. Tickner, Professor of International Relations, Universidad del Rosario, Bogotá, Colombia)

“This trailblazing textbook – the first ever to anchor the study of IR in the politics of the Anthropocene – is set to transform the way students think and learn. Teachers like myself have long needed such a book to explain the intensifying turbulence of life on our planet.” (Peter Dauvergne, Professor of International Relations, University of British Columbia, Canada)

International Relations in the Anthropocene represents an important step for IR and its ability to engage with and respond to the planetary real. This book introduces new ideas of agency, updates traditional understandings of institutions and global governance, and expands our vocabulary for teaching and researching in global politics. It introduces methods that take us beyond the usual approaches with chapters on the city, map-making, collaging, weather, cinema and space. A must for the twenty-first century classroom.” (Stefanie Fishel, Lecturer in Politics and International Relations, University of the Sunshine Coast, Australia)
