How are the cultures of climate change practiced at the scale of the everyday? In short, how do societies and individuals engage with, ‘perform’ and confront global environmental change through the ordinary efforts of practising lifestyles and making livelihoods? What, more specifically, is the role of the media and diverse communication platforms in influencing the practices of everyday climate cultures?
Where and how does affect animate these practices and mediated encounters with technology, media and the everyday? 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 workshop 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 will 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 aim 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 given to the role of ‘affect’ in the framing and creation of the practices of everyday climate cultures.
