Climate Imaginaries of Hope: Workshop at the Petrocultures Conference

SATURDAY, September 1, 2018
09.00-10.15
UNIVERSITY OF GLASGOW

The Climaginaries project is presented in a panel discussion on the synergies and disjunctions between how different disciplines conceptualise the ways climate imaginaries contribute to post-fossil transitions. Climate imaginaries come in different shades and forms. In the workshop we focus on those envisioning desirable lives after fossil fuels. What particular functions do these imaginaries of hope fulfil? And how can we develop a transdisciplinary vocabulary to enable newinsights on how such imaginaries are narrated and effectively translated into climate efforts?
