I was giving away my business card at ASLE, so I figured I should list the new book CFP here so folks can find it!
While Sunvault explored solarpunk through prose, poetry, and art, our new project, Almanac for the Anthropocene, will engage with solarpunk on a practical level.
Our goal with this edited collection is to provide an accessible handbook to transform the Anthropocene rather than fear it. Each chapter will have the same basic outline of interdisciplinary theory, solarpunk testimonies, and practical action. The action could take the form of recipes, building plans, how to organize a protest, etc. Each action will emphasize not just resistance to capitalism and climate disaster on its own, but also on how these ideas can be molded to resist capitalism structurally. The four sections will focus on ingenuity, generative, independence, and community.
We are excited to partner with the Salvaging the Anthropocene series from West Virginia University Press for this project! While coming from an academic press, the goal of the series, and our project, is to remain accessible and practical.
For full submission guidelines, please see our submissions page.
Just like Sunvault, we expect and hope this book will come together organically from your submissions. We can’t wait to see what you will come up with!
