New Masters Program in Climate Change: History, Culture, Society

<from METEOHIST>

Kings1King’s College London has launched a new Masters programme in climate change, MA Climate Change: History, Culture, Society. The programme, aimed particularly at those with a humanities background, starts from the premise that since climate change has permeated all aspects of human life, it is no longer possibly to understand it through scientific and economic analysis. The MA therefore addresses the cultural dimensions of climate change, including questions such as ‘why does climate change provoke disagreement in society?’, ‘is the current IPCC framework the best way to address climate change?’, ‘what are the implications of the dominance of models within climate science?’, and ‘what can we learn from the long history of human-climate interactions?’. The programme is coordinated by Prof. Mike Hulme, founding director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research and author of Why We Disagree About Climate Change.
