Two new open access books in OHP's Critical Climate Change series

Open Humanities Press is delighted to release two new open access books in its Critical Climate Change series:

Telemorphosis: Theory in the Era of Climate Change, vol.1 — edited by Tom Cohen (University at Albany)

Freely available at: http://openhumanitiespress.org/telemorphosis.html

The writers in the volume ask, implicitly, how the 21st century horizons that exceed any political, economic, or conceptual models alters or redefines a series of key topoi. These range through figures of sexual difference, bioethics, care, species invasion, war, post-carbon thought, ecotechnics, time, and so on. As such, the volume is also a dossier on what metamorphoses await the legacies of “humanistic” thought in adapting to, or rethinking, the other materialities that impinge of contemporary “life as we know it.”

Impasses of the Post-Global: Theory in the Era of Climate Change, vol.2 — edited by Henry Sussman (Yale University)

Freely available at: http://openhumanitiespress.org/impasses-of-the-post-global.html

The diverse materials comprising Impasses of the Post-Global take as their starting point an interrelated, if seemingly endless sequence of current ecological, demographic, socio-political, economic, and informational disasters. These include the contemporary discourses of deconstruction, climate change, ecological imbalance and despoilment, sustainability, security, economic bailout, auto-immunity, and globalization itself.
