Following the success of the IOWC’s conference, ‘Adaptation and Resilience to Climatic and Environmental Changes in the Indian Ocean World, past to present,’ in May earlier this year, Prof. Chris Low (Utah), Dr. Philip Gooding (IOWC), and Dr. Julie Babin (IOWC) have composed a call for chapter submissions. The working title for the proposed edited volume is: ‘Conceptualizing Resilience in the Age of the Anthropocene.’ Building on the conference papers, the call challenges potentially interested scholars to use their case studies to revise how ‘resilience’ to global warming and the ‘Anthropocene’ are understood in the Indian Ocean World, past and present.
The full call for chapter submissions is in the attached document below. It includes contact details for the editors, a style guide, and an expected timeline to publication. Please contact the editors if you have any questions and please circulate the call widely.
