Special Publications launched
The Geological Society’s Publishing House is happy to announce the publication of two new books in early 2021
Celebrating 100 Years of Female Fellowship of the Geological Society: Discovering Forgotten Histories
Due to be published in March 2021, this Special Publication celebrates the centenary of the first female Fellows elected to the Society – 112 years after its formation. It presents the often-untold stories of pioneering women geoscientists from across the world who navigated male-dominated academia and learned societies, and it uncovers important female role models in the history of science. Available online at https://sp.lyellcollection.org/online-first/506 and via the Special Publications series at www.geolsoc.org.uk/sp506.
Geoethics: Status and Future Perspectives
This book is a significant step forward in the development of geoethical thinking, its theoretical foundations and practical applications. Geoethics is now ready to be introduced outside the geoscience community as a platform for global ethics, addressing anthropogenic changes and the responsible interaction between humans and the Earth system. Available online at https://sp.lyellcollection.org/online-first/508 and via the Special Publications series from April.
