  • Climate Change Heterotopias: Claiming The Ecological Commons And Regenerating The Public Sphere

    This presentation will discuss the SchoolStrike4Climate movement as an emerging heterotopia: a space in which local and global groups create and enact alternative stories of how we can live on the earth. The purpose of this case study is to examine the potential power of the public sphere as heterotopia when it comes to climate change governance.

    Venue: 81 Fairlie Terrace, Room 103 (81FT103)

  • Who Does Digital Democracy?

    This talk seeks moves beyond arguments about whether contemporary democracies have been ‘hijacked’ to explore what critical theory, indigenous thought, social movements and existing digital platforms can teach us about broadening the subject behind who ‘does’ digital democracy.

    Venue: 81 Fairlie Terrace, Room 103 (81FT103)
