Digital Conceptual History and the Emergence of a Globalized Climate Imaginary

Michael Boyden, Ali Basirat, and Karl Berglund

Over the last two decades, a vast body of scholarship has sprung up thematizing the complexities of climate knowledge-making. The impetus behind this research is straightforward: In order to meet the challenges posed by a warming planet, we need

Climatization and Declimatization

Climate Advocacy in Social Sectors

Katja Müller, James Goodman, Pradip Swarnakar, and Mareike Pampus

Climate change necessitates a confrontation with the ecological consequences of industrial development reliant on fossil fuels, demanding the integration of climate concerns into the core framework of society. Since at least 2010, with rapidly

Germany's Energiewende at a Crossroads

Jonas Heering and Thane Gustafson

Germany's Energiewende (energy transition) is in trouble. On 20 September 2019, following an 18-hour-long summit of the so-called climate cabinet, Germany's governing coalition announced that it had agreed on the basic structure of a new climate

Climate Justice and Intersectionality in the Arctic

Doris Friedrich

The impact of climate change in the Arctic, which is warming twice as fast as the global average (AMAP 2017; Naylor et al. 2019 ; Walsh 2014 ), is predicted to be greater than in any other part of the planet (ACIA 2005). Its effects are myriad

Recent Advances in Middle Eastern Archaeology

Frank Hole

In the past decade there has been a shift of focus from individual archaeological sites to an approach that incorporates the dynamic interplay of land, climate, society, economy, ritual and technical innovation. A growing understanding of past climates and environments, coupled with the use of satellite technology and other means of remote sensing, has opened new avenues of interpretation. Classic problems, such as the origins and spread of agrarian societies, have benefited from an array of new scientific methods, and there is increasing attention to social and ritual aspects of society.

Climate Change and Long-term Stakeholder Engagement

Carrie Furman, Wendy-Lin Bartels, and Jessica Bolson

As awareness of the potential threats posed by climate change increases, researchers and agricultural advisors are being called upon to determine the risks that different stakeholder groups will likely confront and to develop adaptive strategies. Yet, engaging with stakeholders takes time. It also requires a clear and detailed plan to ensure that research and outreach activities yield useful outputs. In this article, we focus on the role of anthropologists as researchers and conveners in stakeholder engagement and provide a generalised overview of a long-term engagement process proceeding in three stages: (1) fact-finding and relationship- building; (2) incubation and collaborative learning; and (3) informed engagement and broad dissemination. We conclude with a discussion of perspectives and challenges that were encountered during two engagement experiences in the south-eastern United States.
