Subhankar Banerjee will be participating in the exhibition (Re-) Cycles of Paradise at the United Nations Climate Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, December 7-18, 2009. The exhibition is organized by ARTPORT_making waves (Valencia-New York-Zurich) and commissioned by the GLOBAL GENDER AND CLIMATE ALLIANCE and the INTERNATIONAL UNION FOR CONSERVATION OF NATURE. A photography and video installation We Are The Ones Who Have Everything To Loose by Subhankar Banerjee will highlight the voice of Gwich’in Steering Committee chairperson Sarah James and her efforts to bring attention to how issues of climate change and industrial development affect her community and the ecology of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

The book A Keener Perception: Ecocritical Studies in American Art History edited by Professors Alan C. Braddock and Christoph Irmscher has just been published. The book includes Professor Finis Dunaway's essay Reframing the Last Frontier: Subhankar Banerjee and the Visual Politics of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, and Subhankar Banerjee's photograph Caribou Migration I is the cover art. This is the first book to consider American art (16th Century to present) from the newly evolving field ecocriticism pioneered by Professor Lawrence Buell of Harvard University and others. Professor Buell wrote the foreword in A Keener Perception.

The book The Alaska Native Reader: History, Culture, Politics edited by Professor Maria Sháa Tláa Williams has just been published. Subhankar Banerjee is among a few non-native scholars to contribute an essay Terra Incognita: Communities and Resource Wars in this historically significant book that reframes Alaska's history from the perspectives of native scholars and artists.
