Routledge – the leading corporate academic publisher in geography and international relations – has published Resilience in the Anthropocene: Governance and Politics at the End of the World, a co-edited volume by the Department of Global and Sociocultural Studies’ Kevin J. Grove, associate professor of human geography and Stephanie Wakefield, postdoctoral associate.
Resilience in the Anthropocene tackles ongoing issues centered around how environmental change is regarded and governed in the Anthropocene era – the current geological age in during which humanity has been the primary influence on climate and the environment.
In the book, Grove and Wakefield discuss core themes of resilience and environmental governance explored and developed through their work as co-leads on the Florida Coastal Everglades Long-Term Ecological Research Project. The program is one of 28 sites in the National Science Foundation’s Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) Network, with the Everglades site headquarters based at Florida International University’s Institute of Environment. Resilience in the Anthropocene also closely follows Wakefield’s recent articles on resilience initiatives and urban governance in Miami and New York City published in Geoforum and Political Geography.
