Abstract

The question of scale has always been central to island studies. Whether through an engagement with relational and archipelagic forces, the employment of fractals, or the prominent positioning of island studies within the Anthropocene, today questions of scale are receiving attention in new ways. What does the recent revisiting of scale raise for methodology, ethics and politics in island studies? In this discussion, Michelle Stephens, Elaine Stratford and Jonathan Pugh explore their recent work in this area, the different and overlapping ways through which we are rethinking the scalar and islands in the contemporary era.
