The Quotidian Anthropocenes (QA) project is a collaborative effort to build analytic capacity to understand and respond to the Anthropocene in different settings, linking academic researchers with community actors. Much of the work is done virtually so participants can join from anywhere in the world. We also help design and run Field Campuses that bring people together in person at different sites.
Many project participants are addressing the project's shared questions by building a QA Archive focused on the places where they live or do research. Other participants are developing analytic frameworks and resources to refine analysis of particular themes (prompting questions about available data infrastructure or land use protections in different places, for example). New participants can join either or both lines of work (developing place or thematic foci).
