Energy Society and Practices: DEI Short course

11th February 2019, 09:30 to 15th February 2019, 13:00, Birley Room, Hatfield College, Various Speakers

A unique opportunity to access training directly from experts across Durham University and the Energy Sector. Available to people within and outside Durham University.

This four and a half day course brings together leading experts to discuss how to understand energy in society through the various practices involved. From material culture studies to practice theory, from economics to visual studies, we explore the analyses available in the social science and humanities that will be needed to make sense of energy and to change the way we organize energy practices. The course introduces key theories and methods from anthropology and sociology, such as the idea of material cultures, everyday practices, organizational forms and social relations.
