About Professor David Schlosberg
Research interests include: Environmental Political Thought; Environmental Politics; Environmental and Climate Justice; Climate Change Politics and Adaptation; Environmental Movements; Sustainable Materialism; Contemporary Political Theory.
Professor Schlosberg's main research interests encompass environmental politics, environmental movements, and political theory, in particular the intersection of the three with his work on environmental and climate justice (most recently Defining Environmental Justice, Oxford 2007). He is a co-editor, with John Dryzek of ANU and Richard Norgaard of UC Berkeley, of The Oxford Handbook of Climate Change and Society (Oxford 2011); the three are in the process of co-authoring a book on The Climate-Challenged Society (forthcoming from Oxford in 2013). Professor Schlosberg has held visiting appointments at the London School of Economics, Australian National University, and Princeton University; he joined the Department as Professor in 2011. Current research includes work on climate justice - in particular justice in adaptation strategies and policies. He is at the beginning of a project examining the new sustainable materialist focus of many environmental movement groups on food and animals, energy, housing, crafting and making, and transportation.
