Sustaining Seas launch
The Department of Gender and Cultural Studies and the Sydney Environment Institute celebrate the publication of Sustaining Seas: Oceanic Space and the Politics of Care with this interdisciplinary, online, academic panel.
Edited by Elspeth Probyn, Kate Johnston, and Nancy Lee, Sustaining Seas foregrounds conversations across, and within, several disciplines, including practitioners of different specialities (artists, writers, planners, policy makers) about how to sustain the seas, as they sustain us. Sustaining Seas aims to build a better understanding of what it means to care for aquatic places and their biocultural communities. The book takes the reader in different directions, and sometimes into whirlpools of historical fact, fictions, and legal frictions. Sustaining Seas assumes that understanding complexity, including social, cultural, colonial, ecological and economic interconnections, is crucial to any interrogation of the marine human.
Join the editors, and contributing authors Alana Mann, Adriana Vergés and Amaia Sánchez-Velasco in an online panel discussion (via Zoom) moderated by Tess Lea, followed by a Q&A.
