DEEP CLIMATE CONVERSATIONS
Topic: “Multi-disciplinarity in Climate Social and Behavioral Sciences: Challenges and Opportunities”
Wednesday, February 1
12:00-1:15 PM EST
The Environmental Politics and Governance network (epgnetwork.org) has launched a new initiative, Deep Climate Conversations. This will be an online structured roundtable (i.e., questions circulated in advance to speakers) on a specific issue. The objective is to explore climate issues at a deeper, theoretical level.
This will be a 75-minute event: 60 minutes for discussion of planned questions, leaving about 15 minutes for comments from the audience. We have scheduled it for Wednesday, February 1, 12:00-1:15 PM EST.
Jennifer Hadden, University of Maryland, College Park
Aseem Prakash, University of Washington Seattle
Teenie Matlock, UC Merced
Ron Mitchell, University of Oregon
Timmons Roberts, Brown University
Benjamin Sovacool, Boston University
This roundtable will focus on the following questions:
- What are the key questions on climate mitigation and adaptation examined in your discipline? What are the key findings?
- What are the most pressing research frontiers in the study of climate change in your discipline?
- Must climate scholars be multi-disciplinary? What are the pros and cons of disciplinary focus vs. multi-disciplinarity
