Eco-polis urbanist Paul Downton, who cofounded the urban cohousing project Christie Walk in Adelaide, will launch the book. Anitra will talk a bit about why and how the book was written — benefiting from a Carson Writing Fellowship (2016–2017) at the Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society at LMU in Munich. Professor Jago Dodson, director of the Center for Urban Research at RMIT University, will be the MC.
The paperback is $42.95 bought online, ordered or in Readings shops. Event, wine and author’s signature all free on the night.
This event is part of the National Sustainable Living Festival 2018.
The paper was in Panel 3 ‘Space of Dispossession, Populism and Anti-Politics’ held between 1.30 and 3.00pm on Thursday 8 February. Other contributors to the same panel were Adam David Morton, Elizabeth Humphrys and Tom Chodor.
Moreover, I will join Ariel Salleh, Adam Morton and James Goodman in a reflective conversation to launch the 20th anniversary edition of Salleh’s Ecofeminism as Politics: Nature, Marx and the Postmodern between 3.45 and 5.15pm on the Friday 8 December afternoon.
The lively discussion engaging all participants in the seminar included responses to questions, such as, What are the lessons of 2017 for contemporary politics? What does ‘socialism’ mean to today’s resurgent and young socialists?
I talked to my book project as a three-month Carson Fellow (Prof. Dr) writing at the centre — 30 October 2016–30 January 2017 — in order to complete the penultimate draft of Small is Necessary: Shared Living on a Shared Planet.
