Julie Sze, University of California Davis
How is climate change shaped by discourses of ecological insecurity? Dr. Julie Sze answers this question by examining eco-cities in China (with a focus on Shanghai), activist efforts in the Pacfic and in Arctic communities, and in California. She argues that climate change initiatives are incomplete and doomed to failure without addressing historical and racial injustice on multiple spatial scales, and that centralizing climate justice and recognition into climate policy is a key pre-condition to fundamental social change that does not exacerbate existing environmental and social inequalities.
