Ethnographers Talk About Energy and Climate Change Ep 02

Written by geadmin



Dr Declan Kuch, The University of South Wales

I’m a Research Fellow in the School of Humanities at UNSW. As a sociologist of science and technology, my research is motivated by the problem of how to reconcile public values with economic democracy in an era characterized by environmental constraints and an obsession with innovation. My research covers climate change, energy policy and the social dimensions of the life sciences. My main role is as a co-leader of the Social Dimensions stream of ARC Centre of Excellence in CBNS. I also co-ordinate the Outreach Committee. This means producing the Centre’s ‘Biomedical Futures’ events. I am currently researching the social, ethical and political dimensions of precision medicine.

A number of my blog audience have complained about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any recommendations to help fix this issue?

  • Republican politicians all over the country have repeated the Great Replacement theory
    A century-old racist theory reentered the political discourse around immigration and has become commonplace on the campaign trail as Republicans hope to retake control of Congress in November.
