Though the causes and effects of climate change pervade our everyday lives—the air we breathe, the food we eat, the objects we use—the way the discourse of climate change influences how we make meaning of ourselves and our world is still unexplored. Contributors to this issue bring diverse perspectives to the ways that climate change science and discourse have reshaped the contemporary architecture of knowledge itself: reconstituting intellectual disciplines and artistic practices, redrawing and dissolving boundaries, and reframing how knowledge is represented and disseminated. The contributors address the emergence of global warming discourse in fields like history, journalism, anthropology, and the visual arts; the collaborative study of climate change between the human and material sciences; and the impact of climate change on forms of representation and dissemination in this new interdisciplinary landscape.

Contributors. Ian Baucom, Rosi Braidotti, David Buckland, Matthew Burtner, Noel Castree, Dipesh Chakrabarty, Tom Cohen, Claire Colebrook, Olivia Gray, Willis Jenkins, Catherine Malabou, Matthew Omelsky, Michael Segal, Bently Spang, Gary Tomlinson, Astrid Ulloa, Lucy Wood
