News from Dec 20, 2018
This workshop chaired by Prof. Nina Kolleck (FU), Prof. David Tindall (UBC) and Alexandra Goritz (FU) will bring together leading scholars in the field of sustainability, climate change and the analysis of social networks. The increased awareness of the impacts of human behavior and social structures on climate change has led to a growing number of scholars starting to analyze the role of social networks play in anthropogenic climate change, contributing crucially on relations and network dynamics.
The workshop will showcase and discuss different types of networks both from a theoretical and an empirical perspective. Participants will discuss the effects, relevance, potential and weaknesses of social networks and the role they play for climate change movements, climate governance, climate change discourse, and climate change policy processes.
Workshop participants are required to send an abstract of the research project they want to present on – including abstracts about new unfinished, conceptual ideas. Please, send your abstracts (600‐900 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com until 31th January 2019. During the workshop (April 2nd – 3rd, 2019), presentations of projects can be done either by a short presentation (10 minutes with 15 minutes discussion afterwards) or a poster presentation session, which is recommended, especially, for PhD students.
