Climate change in the humanities

  • Number of credits 7.5 credits

About the course

In recent years, a conflicted debate has concerned climate and climate change. It is clear in this debate that climate and climate change is not only a natural or scientific phenomena concerning rising temperatures and severe weather conditions, but that there are cultural aspects that affect how we perceive, understand and position ourselves and others. This course deals with such social and cultural aspects of climate and climate change. It highlights how perceptions about climate and climate change continuously play a role for people's identities and everyday life, and take place in memories, popular culture, folklore and social media.
