This roundtable on teaching IR in the Anthropocene brings together a number of authors to mark the publication of International Relations in the Anthropocene: New Agendas, New Agencies, New Approaches – https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/3030530132/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_hsch_vapi_tu00_p2_i5 – a major Palgrave MacMillan textbook initiative for IR in the Anthropocene.

The textbook introduces students of International Relations (and beyond) to the ways in which the advent of, and reflections on, the Anthropocene impact on the study of global politics and the disciplinary foundations of IR. The book contains 24 chapters, divided into four parts, detailing, respectively, why the Anthropocene is of importance to IR, challenges to traditional approaches to security, the question of governance and agency in the Anthropocene, and new methods and approaches, going beyond the human/nature divide.
