The How and the Now: Situating Sustainability in a Moment of Danger

Julie Sze

Drawing from her forthcoming edited collection, Sustainability: Approaches to Environmental Justice and Social Power and her current project Environmental Justice in a Moment of Danger, Sze asks how do we “situate sustainability?” How does the ways in which sustainability is conceived and researched matter now, in the most anti-environmental Federal administration ever? The histories and frameworks of the environmental justice movement are important because of the ways in which activists frame their problems and responses. Thus, the movement’s vulnerability is the paradoxical source of strength, a lesson for those interested in what and how resistance looks like in a moment of danger.
