David Schlosberg is Professor of Government and International Relations at the University of Sydney. Professor Schlosberg is known nationally and internationally for his work in environmental politics, environmental movements, and political theory, in particular the intersection of the three with his work on environmental justice (most recently <i>Defining Environmental Justice</i>, Oxford 2007). He is a co-editor, with John Dryzek of ANU and Richard Norgaard of UC Berkeley, of <i>The Oxford Handbook of Climate Change and Society</i> (Oxford 2011); the three are in the process of co-authoring a book on The Climate-Challenged Society (forthcoming from Oxford in 2013). Professor Schlosberg has held visiting appointments at the London School of Economics, Australian National University, and Princeton University. Current research includes work on climate justice - in particular justice in adaptation strategies and policies, and the question of human obligations of justice to the nonhuman realm. He is at the beginning of a project examining ‘sustainable materialism’ - the focus of many environmental movement groups on flows of power and goods in relation to food, energy, housing, transportation, and crafting and making.
