Darrin Durant, University of Melbourne, visits ITU on Monday 21st September. After having worked at York University in Toronto for many years, Darrin recently returned to his native Australia and is currently preparing to launch a new interdisciplinary Masters degree in science, technology and innovation studies in Melbourne.
In addition, to scheduling meetings with participating teachers on the DIM masters programme to learn of our experiences, Darrin will also be holding a lunchtime/brown bag seminar on 21/9, 12.30-13.45 in Room 3a08.
The title of his talk will be ‘Who’s Unreflexive Now? Lessons from Climate Change Politics in Australia’ and he will tell of his recent research bringing into question STS-informed depictions of climate change experts as invariably unreflexive and still prone to envisioning publics as simply lacking sufficient knowledge of climate science. Velkommen/Välkommen!
