Event Details

Every Tuesday 9.30 – 10.30am, we invite a Lancaster academic to brief us on their research. The format is a 20 minute talk followed by discussion.

Is this a rehearsal?

Prof. Renata Tyszczuk, University of Sheffield

The talk will introduce the Collective Scenarios project, which places scenarios of climate change in their historical, institutional and cultural contexts. It will discuss research into the scenario mode, at the root of the Anthropocene discourse, in climate science and contingency planning. Scenarios are reconsidered in their potential as ‘rehearsal spaces’ for speculative, improvised and collaborative modes of acting on and thinking about uncertain climate futures.
