One additional writing project is Deceleration, an online journal of environmental justice thought and practice I co-edit with environmental journalist/activist Greg Harman. It’s a space that serves as a receptacle for a lot of my activist energies and eco-theoretical impulses. Our goal with Deceleration has been to cultivate an institutional space outside of journalism and academia for community-based EJ news reporting and theory, inspired by intellectual and political movements around the world for degrowth, buen vivir, the right to the city, and the rights of nature/mother earth.

For a deeper dive into the embodied theory/praxis that informs the site, see this essay, published in Academic Labor: Research and Artistry.
And here are some of the pieces I’ve done for the site in the last couple years:
