Thinking like a climate

Hannah Knox’s book on climate change is absolutely brilliant, and I recommend everyone to read it. It draws on Gregory Bateson’s and Eduardo Kohn’s respective approaches to signs and material processes and develops an original framework for bringing into view the socio-material presence of climate—above all in the context of city governance and among citizens engaged in experiments with energy monitoring devices, but also elsewhere in the city of Manchester, UK. I recently reviewed the book for The Cambridge Journal of Anthropology. Read the full review here or download a pdf.
