Public event: Meeting Energy – EASST 2018 conference panel

26th July 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Lancaster Town Hall, Dalton Square
Lancaster LA1 1PJ

STEPS member Prof Andy Stirling (SPRU) is among the panel for this public event on energy, as part of the annual EASST conference. The other panellists are Gillian Kelly and João Camargo, and the meeting is chaired by Maggie Mort of Lancaster University.

From the website:

“With a Science and Technology Studies sensibility we will see energy as an actor by exploring technologies and materials of energy and how they engage, imagine, undermine or support, think and plan with and through, energy systems. We aim in this meeting to pin down the category ‘energy’; to ground it, by making visible some of the practices, strategies and encounters between humans and things, that are often hidden in political rhetorics. We do this by starting with some hidden encounters between civil and military nuclearities, then we consider some embodied resistances to the violence of fracking and then widen to the experiences of activists and campaigners in the climate justice movement.”

The event is free, but space is limited.

The conference is organised by the European Association for the Study of Science and Technology (EASST).
