This paper focuses on the status of resilience for conceptualizing interactions on climate change response between actors possessing differing social standpoints and worldviews. Relations between discursive mobilizations and socio-material manifestations of resilience are considered. The paper reviews and builds upon research which has addressed environmental and scientific issues using the concept of the boundary object and related ideas. Examination of wider literature reveals a series of themes - power and authority, epistemological interactions, reflexivity, and scale - which make visible an array of variables, and which could facilitate more systematic and comparable studies of climate change resilience.
