Consuming the Environment 2017 - multidisciplinary approaches to urbanization and vulnerability

Conference and workshop 3-5 December 2017 at the University of Gävle, Sweden

Climate change, environmental degradation, people escaping war and hard living circumstances are questions the media report on daily. How severe is it? What do people know, how are they informed and what are they thinking? What are media telling us? In what way are environmental concerns dealt with in different academic disciplines? In popular culture? What about education and politics? What more do we need know?

Consuming the Environment is a humanistic and media studies research initiative to a multidisciplinary approach.

This year´s conference highlights urbanization and vulnerability.

The University of Gävle is pleased to invite you to contribute with articles and posters.

Themes are announced on conference Website
