When: 22nd - 23rd September 2016
Where: Sorby Room, Wager Building, Whiteknights Campus, University of Reading
This interdisciplinary workshop aims to bring together a range of scholars spanning media and cultural studies, communications, human and physical geographies and earth sciences. The workshops looks to explore ways of understanding and critically evaluating the everyday practices of climate change cultures, and the media representations that both inform, and are informed by, the everyday. The workshop and networking event looks to explore the intersections of the everyday experiences of the public and the growing climate cultures that work to not only govern our ordinary practices and inform our 'more-than-human', green behaviours but that are produced through complex media forms, discourses and imaginaries.
Specifically, we look to discuss the ways that everyday cultures have become not just politicised in, for example, our ordinary behaviours of travel, shopping, entertainment and eating designed to reduce the public impact on the climate, but the ways these everyday actions and practices are framed in and through media. Special attention will be played to the role of 'affect' in the framing and creation of the practices of everyday climate cultures.
Key questions to be explored at this workshop and networking event include:
This workshop is convened by the Media, Communications and Cultural Studies Association (MeCCSA) Climate Change Network and supported by the University of Reading through the Climate, Culture and Society Research Cluster, The Walker Climate Institute and the Human Geography Research Cluster as well as Bournemouth University's Centre for the Study of Journalism, Culture and Community.
