Issue #1-3

While you wait for the online version of our newest issue entitled “Should we Kill the Car?” we thought you might enjoy to revisit our earlier publications.

Issue #1: “Tvergastein”
Our first issue serves as an introduction to our journal. Named after the cabin of Norwegian philosopher and founder of deep ecology, Arne Næss, Tvergastein’s goal is to be a meeting place between academia and the environmental movement.

The issue contains contributions from noted scholars such as Robin Eckersly, Vandana Shiva, and David Rothenburg, and is complemented by an interview with Bruno Latour.


Issue #2: “The Opening of the Arctic”
At the same time as the Arctic ice cap is receding due to global warming the Arctic itself is emerging as the new frontier for shipping and fossil fuel extraction.

Our second issue thematizes this double opening with articles by former foreign minister of Norway Jonas Gahr Støre, Hanna Marcussen of MDG, and professor Lawrence Buell.


Issue #3: “Adaptation and its Limits”

The two main strategies for confronting the challenge of climate change have been mitigation and adaptation. In this issue we asked what adaptation to new climates entails and demands of us. Scholars like Dr. Kari Marie Nordgaard, and Professor Gufu Oba contributed.
