Hopes and fears in times of change

Rigby, K and Jones, O (2016) Hopes and fears in times of change. In: Being Human: A Festival of the Humanities, 19 November 2016, Burdall's Yard, Bath, UK.

Abstract

Perhaps we used to think of climate change as something that happens in far-flung places, and in the distant future. We might also have a tendency to think of 'the environment' or its challenges as somehow separate to ourselves and our social or cultural lives. Rapid environmental change can be very disorientating for our own sense of who- or even where- we are. It affects our feelings about the future, and the places that we are attached to. How do we navigate between unrealistic hope and crippling fear? Please join us for film screenings and conversations at Burdall's Yard. Environmental Humanities Professors Kate Rigby and Owain Jones will also share emerging ideas from their cutting-edge research in the UK, Micronesia and beyond, about how people cope with change in distinctly local ways.
