JEffrEy r. di LEo Climate change has a huge footprint--and not just on the planet. It touches nearly every academic discipline, including many in the humanities. This multidisciplinary reach has the ability to not only alter conversations within areas of research, but also to encourage dialogue among them. It is in our best interest to encourage considerations of climate change across disciplines so as to draw as many voices and perspectives into the conversation as possible. For some, this seems wrong-headed. They aim to localize discussion of climate change to scientific calculations of greenhouse gases and average surface temperatures. These individuals tend to believe that discussions of climate change are more the province of science than the humanities or critical theory. Readers of symplok will appreciate the value of moving beyond basic greenhouse physics to a consideration of the political, aesthetic, ethical, and economic impact of climate change. And it is here that discussions within the humanities can interweave with discussions in the sciences--and hold the potential to radically transform both areas. Climate change asks of critical and cultural theorists nothing more or less than a re-evaluation of our work, and challenges us to rethink how we use
