Climate Humanities


My research contributes to the emergent area of the Climate Humanities, the nexus of humanities approaches to understanding and facing the challenges of climate change which is complementary to Climate Sciences. Like many who are developing communication- and humanities-based approaches to addressing issues around environmental change, I produce research that often sits across disciplines, having published in journals as diverse as Textual Practice, Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews, and Futures. I enjoy approaching issues around climate change from a variety of critical and cultural perspectives (for example, the ecological, climate crisis-driven aesthetics of contemporary science podcasts) as well as with practice and industry-led thinking (for example, how multiplatform design can be used to communicate the complexity of energy systems). My work in this area includes discourse and cultural analysis as well as practical application and project development.
