Identity destabilised - living in an overheated world

Thomas Hylland Eriksen and Elisabeth Schober have edited this collection that explores the question of identity in an overheated world.

We are living in a new epoch: the Anthropocene, where the world is overheated by human activity, driven too fast and filled too full, uneven and unequal. This collection explores the question of identity in this new world, looking at the consequences of rapidly accelerating change on social and personal identities and providing a concrete set of perspectives on how people conceive their selves and belonging in the twenty-first century.

The book forms part of the ERC Advanced Grant project “Overheating”.
