Subject: [gep-ed] Handbook of Anti-Environmentalism Call for Chapters

CFP for book chapters for Handbook of Anti-Environmentalism.

Handbook of Anti-Environmentalism

David Tindall, Mark C.J. Stoddart, and Riley E. Dunlap (Editors).

To be published by Edward Elgar Publishing.

We seek chapter proposals for an edited volume to be published by Edward Elgar 
Publishing on anti-environmental movements and mobilization. David Tindall, 
Mark C.J. Stoddart, and Riley E. Dunlap will serve as editors for this volume.

This book will focus on empirical research and theorizing about movements, 
campaigns, and collective action against environmental movements and 
environmental protection policies and programs writ large.  Broadly speaking 
these efforts can be conceptualized as “counter-movements.”

While there are a few exemplars of anti-environmental counter-movements, such 
as the Wise Use Movement that emerged in the Western US in the 1980s and 1990s, 
or the contemporary climate change denial campaigns in North America and Europe 
– we anticipate including studies examining a wide variety of collective action 
against environmentalism and environmental protection efforts, and plan to 
include cases that vary in terms of geography (including developed and 
developing countries), substantive environmental issues (forestry, fishing, 
mining, nuclear power, climate change, wilderness protection, environmental 
justice, environmental racism, etc), and political ideology. 

With regard to the issue of political ideology, the exemplar cases involved the 
mobilization of conservative actors against the environmental movement, 
scientists, and governments. But other examples might include: Indigenous 
groups that have mobilized against environmental campaigns over issues like 
whale hunting or seal hunting, and progressive social justice movements that 
have mobilized against environmental movements that are seen as embodying 
neo-liberal agendas that ignore or even promote environmental injustice. Other 
themes might explore the roles of religion and culture (such as an adherence to 
anthropocentrism, or commitment to consumerism) in catalyzing opposition to 

One section of the book will focus on theoretical work. We anticipate 
submissions on counter-movement theory, and other relevant theoretical 
perspectives in environmental social science (including perspectives that 
provides explanations for resistance to environmental protection and 
sustainability in the context of politics, the economy, culture, and social 

Empirically, we would like to encourage the inclusion of diverse cases that 
examine the breadth of anti-environmental movements. We are interested in 
political economic accounts of anti-environmentalism, including network 
analyses of corporate interlocks, and counter-movement networks. 

This will be a multi-disciplinary volume, and we anticipate contributions from 
sociology, political science, anthropology, geography, history, and other 

We encourage diverse methods, including quantitative, qualitative and 
mixed-methods approaches, and studies that vary amongst micro, meso, and macro 
analyses. We also encourage the submission of proposals for historical analyses 
on this topic.
