From Climate to Landscape: Imagining the Future

This three-year project is funded by the European Social Fund and involves academics in Biosciences, Geography and English. In a uniquely multi-disciplinary investigation, we will compare community responses to a range of representations of climate change from popular cultural constructions in film and literature, to ecologically-informed computer simulations of familiar landscapes. Throughout, we aim to evaluate how the community at large responds to these diverse representations. We hope to explore how our imaginative responses to climate change are just as vital in addressing the problem of climate change as hard scientific fact.
