This workshop will explore the relationship between the science, politics and policy of climate change in the post-Soviet world, by considering the historical development of the concept of climate change as a scientific thesis, environmental problem and policy issue. We invite papers that will complement work on the history of the discursive political construction of climate change in the West by examining a highly contrasting (but intimately related) cultural context. In so doing the workshop will provide an in-depth look at how post-Soviet understandings of climate change (scientific, environmental and political) have developed and how they affect post-Soviet policy
If you wish to present a paper, please submit an abstract of up to 250 words via email to Dr Teresa Ashe (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the subject heading “Soviet and Post-Soviet Imaginings of Climate’” by 15th January 2017. You will be notified of the decision on your abstract via email by 1st February 2017.
