“Not only is climate change considered one of the most pressing issues of our time, but anthropology as the ‘study of humanity’ is being pressed for answers and solutions,” write Dr. Antrosio and Dr. Han.
Arlington, VA (PRWEB) March 10, 2015
Open Anthropology, a digital-only publication of the American Anthropological Association, is proud to announce the release of its newest issue. In Hello Anthropocene: Climate Change and Anthropology, Open Anthropology’s new editors Jason Antrosio (Hartwick College) and Sallie Han (SUNY Oneonta) offer twelve articles and three book reviews of anthropological works on climate change.
Antrosio and Han curate a set of articles that explore the social impacts of climate across the globe and over time. “Not only is climate change considered one of the most pressing issues of our time, but anthropology as the ‘study of humanity’ is being pressed for answers and solutions,” write Dr. Antrosio and Dr. Han in their accompanying editorial.
With events such as the United Nations Climate Change Conference to be held later this year, the articles and reviews in this issue of Open Anthropology have been selected as resources for communicating anthropological research on climate change to broad audiences.
Content in Open Anthropology is culled from the full archive of AAA publications, curated into issues, and made freely available on the internet for a minimum of six months for users to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search or link to the full text of these articles. Each issue is dedicated to topics that are of interest to the general public, educators, advocates and public policy makers.
