Amitav Ghosh’s The Great Derangement

This is an excellent discussion using Amitav Ghosh’s 2016 book The Great Derangement. He explores the role of arts and culture with and around the environmental crisis, its entanglements and forms, from an Asian perspective as well as a European one, problematising the dominance of the scientific in the discourse (not questioning science, but questioning the ways that science can talk…). The discussion links the book, XR and The Dark Mountain Project which also addresses the role of culture in the crisis.
