Abstract:

Low-lying Pacific island nations are experiencing the frontline of lea-level rises and climate change and are responding creatively and making-sense in their own vernacular terms. Pacific Climate Cultures aims to bring Oceanic philosophies to the frontline of social science theorization. It explores the home-grown ways that climate change becomes absorbed into the combined effects of globalization and into a living nexus of relations amongst human and non-humans, spirits and elements. Contributors to this edited volume explore diverse examples of living climate change-- from floods and cyclones, through song and navigation, to new forms of art, community initiatives and cultural appropriations-- and demonstrate their international relevance in understanding climate change.
