**CANCELLED** Developing narrative agency: creative and critical practices for transformative change
This seminar is part of the LUCSUS Seminar Series Spring 2023 - Methods for Mobilization
Alexandra Nikoleris will talk about how to think about the relationship between making a place, re-imagining the future and doing so together with other people. She will share what she learnt from working with Carbon Ruins and how those insights can be used in understanding sustainable forest practices in Sweden.
About Alexandra Nikoleris:
Alexandra Nikoleris is an associate senior lecturer in Environmental and Energy Systems Studies at Lund University. Her research is on futures and futuring in light of sustainability transitions with a focus on climate change and more recently biodiversity loss. More specifically, she's interested in the stories that are told about sustainable futures, for what purposes and for whom they make sense and what kind of change they can mobilise.
About the LUCSUS Seminar Series
For researchers engaging with complex sustainability problems and environmental justice, the line between researcher and participant in social mobilization can be fine and sometimes tricky to navigate. The call for transdisciplinarity is fundamental to LUCSUS research and encourages us to actively contribute to developing solutions to complex sustainability problems. This makes reflexivity and positionality key questions to think about. How do we engage with the issues we study? What methods can we use in translating our research into social action, and how do we navigate between roles as researchers, practitioners, and individuals?
For the 2022-2023 LUCSUS seminar series, we will hear from researchers who have engaged with sustainability issues on the ground and learn from their experiences of working across the researcher-activist gap.
