Title: Values at Sea: Marine Science Studies Meet Blue humanities
Guest editors: Elis Jones, Jose A. Cañada, and Sabina Leonelli (University of Exeter)
Across social science and humanities, attention is increasingly focused on the sea. There has been a notable rise in panels, papers and projects in recent years working on understanding the challenges that marine sciences face in a time of ecological crisis. This growing interest is no surprise: the sea is a site of immense value, supporting and shaping the global biosphere, and is under considerable threat both by global change and local pressures. Whilst marine ecosystems are pushed to the brink, scholars now often talk of the blue humanities and oceanic turns, of blue economics and accelerations, and of ocean decades. These trends necessitate a similar refocusing towards the sea in the history, philosophy, and social studies of science, fields that are ideally placed to help understand and contextualise some of the changes occurring to marine systems.
