Abstract

Although concerns regarding the nature and role of science in relation to ecological problems and societal transformation have a much longer history, 1 this debate has intensified in recent years as contested notions of environment and sustainability/sustainable development have increasingly been adopted from within the academic community and become a prominent issue for international policy making. Against this background, SHE has recently emerged as an academic field of inquiry and engagement, which is concerned with both the scholarly-professional and practical-administrative implications of socio-ecological crisis. Overall, it seeks to create an academe that is more relevant to, if not responsible for, a more democratic and ecologically sensitised social order.
