BWB Texts' Climate Change Series
Reviewed by Briar Lawry
All kinds of significant writers and experts from Aotearoa are called upon to contribute to BWB Texts, whether it’s for a whole (small) book or just a chapter of their expertise. Think Melani Anae on the Polynesian Panthers, Jess Berentson-Shaw on trustworthy communication in the modern era, Siouxsie Wiles on antibiotic resistance – not to mention micro-memoirs from the likes of Glenn Colquhoun, Albert Wendt, Rachel Buchanan and Kirsty Gunn.
We have a broad range of titles in the series with a particular focus on keeping titles related to climate change, especially as relates to Aotearoa and the wider Pacific. They are a fabulous way to learn from experts in an easy and readable way – and once you get started, you’ll be hungry for more!
Interested in understanding the borders that flow between the island groups of the Pacific? Try False Divides, by Lana Lopesi. Want to hear from a range of informed perspectives on the new normal of now and of the future? Try Living with the Climate Crisis, edited by Tom Doig. Investigating the specifics of freshwater challenges in contemporary Aotearoa? Try Mountains to Sea, edited by Mike Joy.
There are so many different ones to look into, so check them out in the library – or you can access a huge range of collections through the EPIC Database. Simply log-in using the details on the Senior Library MyCollege page. Check out the Critical Issues collection here.
