This collection brings together diverse pieces that engage with the powerful and poetic concept of shadow places, introduced by Val Plumwood (2008). Contributors were invited to reflect on the concept in light of their own research and creative practice and the related concerns of justice and climate change. Contributions come from a diverse mix of early career and established authors and artists. The form of each entry varies, allowing for creativity and broad interpretation, and includes classic review pieces, mini-essays, reflective vignettes, etymologies and creative contributions.
