research school on climate change narratives

One of our time’s most important research areas is climate change. Most research on climate change is within the natural sciences, but it’s becoming more and more obvious that examining what has happened, what will happen and why is not sufficient. What happens after the scientists publish their findings? A group I’ve been working with for a short while is looking at that very question from a humanities point of view, examining what we call Climate Change Narratives. My contribution will be to look at the ways narratives about Climate Change are constructed and circulate in social media.

This summer we’re offering a research school on Climate Change Narratives for PhD students and junior faculty as part of the Bergen Summer Research Schools. If you’re interested, take a look at the program – and if you know someone who may be interested, please forward the information to them. The application deadline is March 1. Participants will have to pay a tuition fee (NOK 3000) and travel and accomodation, but lunches and dinners are included. There are also full and partial stipends available for a number of students coming from the global south.
