Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. Climate is an old idea, but an idea which retains tremendous power, versatility and utility in today s world. For the Ancient Greeks, climate worked both as index and as agency , and this dual function has recurred throughout human cultural history and it works too in contemporary discourses about climate change. Climates change physically, but climates can also change ideologically. What climate means to different people in different places in different eras is not stable. If culture is concerned with how human meaning, symbolism and practice take on substantive and material forms, then studying climate through culture is likely to be a fruitful activity. This Major Work is a valuable synopsis of a diffuse discourse and captures some of the most important writing on climate and culture that has appeared since the 1980s. It provides a structure within which the recently growing body of work in human geography, anthropology, sociology and religious studies can be placed. Volume One: Theorising Climate and Culture Volume Two: The Agencies of Climate Volume Three: Reading Climate and Culture in the Past Volume Four: Reading Climate and Culture in the Future Volume Five: Climate and Culture in Places Volume Six: Cultural Representations of Climate.

Synopsis :

‘Climate’ is an old idea, but an idea which retains tremendous power, versatility and utility in today’s world. For the Ancient Greeks, climate worked both as index and as agency , and this dual function has recurred throughout human cultural history and it works too in contemporary discourses about climate change. Climates change physically, but climates can also change ideologically.  What climate means to different people in different places in different eras is not stable. If culture is concerned with how human meaning, symbolism and practice take on substantive and material forms, then studying climate through culture is likely to be a fruitful activity.

 

This Major Work is a valuable synopsis of a diffuse discourse and captures some of the most important writing on climate and culture that has appeared since the 1980s. It provides a structure within which the recently growing body of work in human geography, anthropology, sociology and religious studies can be placed.

 

Volume One:  Theorising Climate and Culture

About the Author: Mike Hulme is professor of climate and culture in the Department of Geography at King’s College London.  His work sits at the intersection of climate, history and culture.  He studies how knowledge about climate and its changes is made and represented and analyses the numerous ways in which the idea of climate-change is deployed in public discourse around the world.  His previous books include Can Science Fix Climate Change? A Case Against Climate Engineering (Polity, 2014), Exploring Climate Change Through Science and In Society (Routledge, 2013) and Why We Disagree About Climate Change (Cambridge, 2009).  This latter book was chosen by The Economist magazine as one of its science and technology books of the year.  From 2000 to 2007 he was the Founding Director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, based at the University of East Anglia, and since 2007 has been the founding Editor-in-Chief of the review journal Wiley Interdisciplinary Reviews (WIREs) Climate Change. He is currently Head of Department.
