HannahArendt.net have a call for papers out on Arendt’s thought that does not conceptualize nature as something outside the political.
Call for Papers: Nature and Politics
The way in which human societies interact with nature is currently becoming a key political issue. Anthropogenic climate change, the destruction of ecosystems, the unbridled ravage of natural resources – these are now central issues of political negotiation and conflict. This raises a number of questions for political thought. Nature and politics have long been opposites in the history of Western ideas – though not undisputedly so. One of today’s major challenges is to rethink and overcome this dualism and understand nature as a political concept. We find approaches to this notably at the margins of the Western history of ideas and beyond: in the cosmologies of non-Western societies as well as, for example, in Alexander von Humboldt.
For this issue of HannahArendt.net, the editors are looking for elements of a political thought that does not conceptualize nature as something outside the political – with Hannah Arendt and beyond Hannah Arendt.
Before submitting texts, the editors ask that abstracts of up to 500 words be sent by March 15. Confirmed contributions are to be submitted by the end of June 2021.
