2 Scopus citations


Oscillating between naturalistic observations and conceptual forays, this essay simultaneously performs and introduces the notion of "composing climate change" at the heart of this special issue. Spanning personal narrative, poetry, dialogue, theoretical meditation, thick description, photographic essay, and other modes of scholarly writing, the contributors to this issue experiment with genre, style, and form as they seek to describe, evoke, grasp, disclose, and otherwise imagine what it means and-crucially-what it feels like to be an earthling in a time of tremendous ecological change and profound planetary transformation.
