Video Lecture: Introduction to Walking with Video

Triple Special Issue in the journal “World Futures”: Queer Convivialist Perspectives for Sustainable Futures

I have the pleasure to share the news that the Triple Special Issue that I guest-edited in the journal “World Futures” (Volume 76, Issue 5-7), with the title “Queer Convivialist Perspectives for Sustainable Futures”, is now available online on the journal’s website at https://www.tandfonline.com/toc/gwof20/76/5-7?nav=tocList . The print version will be released soon by the journal.

The journal has a limited number of free downloads of my general introduction to the special issue, if you click on this link: https://www.tandfonline.com/eprint/CBXEMQCBIGTCYXBEUMYR/full?target=10.1080/02604027.2020.1777834

The special issue of World Futures on “queer convivialist perspectives for sustainable futures” focuses its attention on the potential insights that queer approaches may bring to sustainability research and to the search for sustainable futures. It suggests a queering of conviviality, reaching beyond the anthroponormative limitation of the Convivialist Manifesto and its lack of attention to bodies, while taking up its focus on humans as desiring beings and its implicit invitation to queer good lives. The contributed articles share transdisciplinary (academic and arts-based) research that offers analyses and interpretations opening up new perspectives for transformation of individuals and society.

Please note: The articles in this Special Issue of the journal World Futures were written by their respective authors in the course of year 2019. Hence, the special issue refers mainly to the 1st “Convivalist Manifesto”, published in 2013. Meanwhile, a second Convivialist Manifesto was released in French in early 2020, is available in German since mid-2020, and should be soon also released in full in English by late 2020 or early 2021. My introduction to the special issue refers shortly to that latest development.

A literature list on arts, culture and sustainability

Please find below as PDF file, a list of references that deal with the arts and culture in relation to sustainability. I will update the PDF file and this blog-post once in a while (when I find time)

A literature list compiled by Sacha Kagan on arts culture and sustainability(PDF)

latest update: 15.08.2020

I compiled this list on 21.07.2020, in the context of an email exchange with a group of researchers organizing a workhop on art & sustainability, who were not aware of the already quite large amount of literature published on the topic. I make the list available here too, because it might be helpful to others…

Please accept my apologies if your work in this subject area is not included. The list is for sure not exhaustive. Do contact me to suggest more references to include, if needed. (However, I will not include websites, newspaper and magazine articles, blogs and the likes. I am aiming to focus the list on research-publications. I also aimed to exclude most BA and MA Theses I stumbled upon, while including Doctoral Theses. I could not properly check for literature in the languages that I do not speak myself; this list is thus skewed towards English-language texts, followed by German and French-language texts. A couple of other languages are sporadically included.)

Please understand that the list contains a few works that you might interpret as ‘off-topic’ (but which I consider to be at the ‘borderline’ of this subject area and thus relevant enough to be included). For this reason, some research fields are represented by only one or two works.

Warning: This list aims to give an overview of a variety of available texts in this subject area. It does not imply any support or condonement for any of the included texts. (In other words, I of course do not necessarily agree with, or support everything said by every author.) I did not exclude any texts based on my evaluation of their relative (de)merits. I also do not want to highlight the texts that I would find more insightful or fundamental, but instead let you make your own exploration choices ;-D.
