From conference description: How did climate change become such a divisive issue? How does culture—meaning the beliefs, values, social practices, language, and attitudes by which we organize daily life—affect our understanding of climate change and limit or advance our possibilities for addressing it? Why have some embraced climate change denial and tried to delegitimize climate science? Can literature, art, history, politics, economics, psychology, language, and other social science and humanities disciplines bring to the discussion new and constructive ways of communicating? These questions motivate “Climate Change and Culture in the Great Plains.”
As part of the conference, Aubrey Streit Krug, Director of Ecosphere Studies at The Land Institute will present on how disciplines can work together.
