Crunching the Core

November 16, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

For this season of Crunching the Core, we will attempt to bring some familiar (and some new) texts to bear on contemporary issues. 

Our third session will take place on Wednesday 16th November at 10:00-11:30 EST. In this session, we will discuss the topic of global warming from a non-environmental law lens, relying on distributional analysis. The focus on global solutions to a global problem frames the distributional choices in North/South terms.  But climate change is intensely local – and unlikely to be avoided. How to place the distribution of harms, risks, responsibilities for a warming world in the foreground?  And how might foregrounding a warming world challenge the distributive analytic itself?

Leading us will be Chantal Thomas and Amy CohenThey will be setting up our discussion of the following texts:

    • COP27 Leader’s Photo (mainstream text)
    • R. Hale, ‘Coercion and Distribution in a Supposedly Non-Coercive State’ 38 Political Science Quarterly (1923)
    • G. Roelvink & J.K. Gibson-Graham, ‘A Postcapitalist Politics of Dwelling: Ecological Humanities and Community Economies in Conversation’ 46 Australian Humanities Review (2009)
    • S. Healy, ‘Communism as a Mode of Life’ 27:3 Rethinking Marxism (2015), pp. 345-6
    • Harris, ‘Toward a Law and Political Economy Approach to Environmental Justice’, in S. Atapattu et al. (eds), The Cambridge Handbook of Environmental Justice and Sustainable Development (CUP 2021)
