Ecotopian Lexicon

Presents thirty novel terms that do not exist in English to envision ways of responding to the environmental challenges of our generation

As the scale and gravity of climate change becomes undeniable, a cultural revolution must ultimately match progress in the realms of policy, infrastructure, and technology. Proceeding from the notion that the dominant Western cultures lack the terms and concepts needed to describe or respond to our environmental crisis, An Ecotopian Lexicon is a collaborative volume of short, engaging essays that offer ecologically productive terms--drawn from other languages, science fiction, and subcultures of resistance--to envision and inspire responses and alternatives to fossil-fueled neoliberal capitalism.

Each of the thirty suggested "loanwords" helps us imagine how to adapt and even flourish in the face of the socioecological adversity that characterizes the present moment and the future that awaits. From "Apocalypso" to "Qi," " * " to "Total Liberation," thirty authors from a range of disciplines and backgrounds assemble a grounded yet dizzying lexicon, expanding the limited European and North American conceptual lexicon that many activists, educators, scholars, students, and citizens have inherited. Fourteen artists from ten countries respond to these chapters with original artwork that illustrates the contours of the possible better worlds and worldviews.
