  Challenging Human Supremacy: Degrowth, post-growth, and the future of life on earth. A Symposium in Honor of Eileen Crist  
(Science Technology and Society)

In her recent book, Abundant Earth (2019, University of Chicago Press), Eileen Crist argues that the continued existence of life on earth requires us to rethink our relationship to the planet. She calls for humans to scale down and pull back by challenging human supremacy and economic growth frameworks. This symposium celebrates Dr. Crist contributions to the field by bringing together a range of scholars to address these issues.
