Many works on environment and climate justice substantiate this claim. Two texts that focus specifically on Hurricane Katrina, for example, include Bullard and Wright’s Race, Place and Environmental Justice after Hurricane Katrina (2009), and David and Enarson’s co-edited The Women of Katrina: How Gender, Race and Class Matter in an American Disaster (2012). See also Gunaratnam and Clark (2012) on the question of race and vulnerability to climate change in the context of critical race studies in ‘Pre-race post-race: climate change and planetary humanism’.
In a short piece for the journal Environmental Humanities, Mike Hulme (2015, pp. 176, 177) expands the term ‘climate’ to include more direct thinking about the weather, because just as the weather has a complex role in sociocultural life, so too does climate. While we agree, we seek an even more capacious, naturalcultural understanding of both weather and climate.

Multiple studies explore how resilience rhetoric works to maintain dominant and unequal power relations across gender, race and class lines. See Bracke’s ‘Bouncing back: vulnerability and resistance in times of resilience’ (2016) and Robin James’ Resilience and Melancholy: Pop Music, Feminism, Neoliberalism (2015). For a specific uptake of the sociological and ecological in resilience discourse see Ashley Dawson’s Extreme Cities (2017).
