The Reading List
A list of reads to fill your brain with knowledge about climate justice, along with commentary from a friend of TAL-TO, Matthew Ferguson.
“Eco-feminists like Haraway have been operating in this mentality for 20 years and it’s been co-opted by writers like Timothy Morton who don’t recognize or give credit.”
“Elaboration on his Gifford lectures.”
“Cornerstone text about the ways climate denial and issue avoidance are psychological issues, not just social ones.”
“A must-read and cornerstone of the intersection of Indigenous and scientific knowledge/ethics on climate.”
“Beautfiul, heart-breaking, and vulnerable. And incredibly well-researched. He was researching as a political graphic novelist for a critique of new policies from Macron on the Paris Accords and chronicled his journey from knowing nothing about climate change to being an expert, with all the emotional pitfalls and despair along the way.”
“Fantastic book that explores Indigenous modes of understanding the ‘more than human’ world. More than human / non-human are key terms in contemporary discourse, so it’s a really great intro to how western thought is way behind on this.”
“This is hilarious.”
