The Quotidian Anthropocenes project explores how the Anthropocene is playing out on the ground in different settings. The aim is to create both situated, place-based and comparative perspective, building new modes of collective knowledge and action.
Extending from Eli Elinoff and Tyson Vaughan’s conceptualization of the “quotidian Anthropocene” in work on environmental crises in urbanizing Asia, the project is designed to be global in scope while also fine-grained and local. The focus is on anthropocenics — the dynamic interactions between scales (local to planetary) and systems (ecological, atmospheric, technological, economic, political, social, cultural and so on) — that produce the Anthropocene at the local level.
The project is organized around a shared set of questions, addressed through a series of Field Campuses, an on-going Open Seminar and a lively archive project. See information here on how to join the collaboration with a thematic or place-based focus.
