ETROD-Zyklus"chemistry and society"

Dear colleagues,
we are looking forward to the second session of our ETROD cycle on “chemistry and society”.On Thursday, 16th May 2024 – 4-5:30 pm (CET) sharp – we welcome environmental historian Simone Müller(Augsburg University) to talk about “Toxic commons.”
Based on her work on the intricate intersectionality of time, space, and bodies in relation to toxic exposure – captured in the notion of toxic timescape – Simone will elaborate on toxic commons as an analytical tools to grapple with the paradoxical “we” inherent to the age of the Anthropocene.
To prepare the discussion we recommend a brief article (attached): Müller, Simone M. 2021. "Toxic Commons: Toxic Global Inequality in the Age of the Anthropocene." Environmental History 26 (3):444–450. doi: 10.1093/envhis/emab014.006.
Prof. Dr. Simone Müller holds a DFG Heisenberg professorship in Global Environmental History and Environmental Humanities at Augsburg University. Her research interests range from the international trade in hazardous  waste material and toxicity as a historical construction, the intellectual history of economic ecological thinking, to verticality as  an enviro-historical concept and the study of marine space. Her work received numerous awards and fellowships, among them from the Smithsonian Institution, the Science History Institute, and the University of Pennsylvania.

New Open Access Publication on Redistributive Justice in South Africa

The volume Beyond Expropriation Without Compensation: Law, Land Reform and Redistributive Justice in South Africa, co-edited by Olaf Zenker, Cherryl Walker and Zsa-Zsa Boggenpoel, was just published in open access and in print within the series "Cambridge  Studies in Constitutional Law“. Based on a project and conference at the Stellenbosch Institute for Advanced Study (STIAS) in South Africa here   , the volume takes as its starting point the recent politically and emotionally charged debates around a constitutional amendment explicitly permitting the expropriation of land without compensations. It offers both expert commentary on this issue from a variety of disciplinary perspectives and also fresh ideas on how to advance the redistributive transformation that South Africa so urgently needs. It brings critically important debates around transformative property law, the need for diversified land justice and the possibilities of alternative forms of redistribution into productive conversation with each other. Besides contributions by the editors, it features chapters by Bulelwa Mabasa, Thomas Karberg, Siphosethu Zazela, Elmien du Plessis, Juanita Pienaar, Danie Brand, Ruth Hall, Sindiso Mnisi Weeks, William Beinart, Vishwas Satgar, Heinz Klug and James Ferguson. Check out the freely available chapters here    .
