Cultural Spaces of Climate

Tomorrow I will be attending the first workshop of the Cultural Spaces of Climate AHRC network in association with the Royal Meteorological Society and Royal Geographical Society which is being held at the University of Nottingham. The network is led by Dr Georgina Endfield and Dr Carol Morris in the School of Geography at Nottingham and the programme of activities aim:

1.)    To question the bias toward climate change, and global as the preferred scale, in contemporary climate research

2.)    To refocus attention on public understanding of climate, and weather, at the local, sensory level

3.)    To consider the changing cultural spaces of climate knowledge production, past and present

4.)    To explore the actual and potential role of interest groups, including enthusiast/amateur, professional and learned societies in the collection, production and circulation of climate knowledge past and present.

The workshop tomorrow is titled ‘Reculturing Climate’ and will include a plenary by James Fleming (Corby College, Maine) on ‘What counts as knowledge? The historical spaces of Klima‘. I will hopefully be presenting my work on climate change and local museums at the third workshop in the series to be held in June.
