Welcome to Rejecting Empire, the new blog by Pegi Eyers that engages with the collapse, or eroding, of natural ecosystems and human societies in our time. What does it mean to be a witness to this massive change, with all the eco-grief and horror it entails? How can we face the trauma of climate events with resilience and healing for ourselves, others and Earth Community? Many believe collapse is already happening, and Rejecting Empire will engage with the mutual processes of letting go (or tearing down) of the old world while simultaneously building up the new. What would a post-collapse post-oil post-capitalist world look like? Can we weave Apocalyptic Magic together, for a sustainable future? Stay tuned!
Follow Rejecting Empire for cutting-edge critique, social commentary and anti-colonial discourse. With a focus on Apocalypse Studies, prepare to be challenged!
