David Schlosberg

Professor

David Schlosberg is Co-Director of the Sydney Environment Institute and Professor of Environmental Politics in the Department of Government and International Relations at the University of Sydney, and is known internationally for his work in environmental politics, environmental movements, and political theory – in particular the intersection of the three with his work on environmental justice. Most recently, he has co-authored Climate-Challenged Society (Oxford 2013) with John Dryzek of ANU and Richard Norgaard of UC Berkeley; the same team edited The Oxford Handbook of Climate Change and Society (Oxford 2011). Professor Schlosberg has held visiting appointments at the London School of Economics, Australian National University, and Princeton University. His current research includes work on climate justice – in particular justice in adaptation strategies and policies, and the question of human obligations of justice to the nonhuman realm. He is also examining the sustainable practices of new environmental movement groups – in particular their attention to flows of power and goods in relation to food, energy, housing, transportation, and crafting and making.
