Book Project

Vision: This book aims to set out the key terms, concepts, disciplinary perspective and case studies that will enable readers to:

  1. Reconceptualise the urban as a multi-species environment,
  2. Explore practical considerations and applications for amplifying more-than-human approaches to the urban environment,
  3. Imagine a post-anthropocentric urban future and 4. develop a foundation for further enquiry.

This book project aims to develop a unique truly interdisciplinary co-authored book that sets out the foundations of this ‘Untaming the Urban’ area of investigation on multi-species urban entanglements across disciplines (ie. from the sciences, social sciences, humanities and creative practice) and terminology (eg.  urban ecologies, constructed/novel ecologies, post-anthropocentric, more-than-human, multi-species built environments, cities, towns, suburbs, etc.). To produce a book that fully explore the innovative potential of contemporary book publishing (ie. where the print edition can be mediated by a multi-media electronic publication). The objective is for the book to have impact by being accessible to read by multiple academic disciplines as well as practitioners and an interested public.
