Keyword: Environmental History

Björn Billing, PhD in History of Ideas
My research interests focus mainly on natural landscapes, travel and visual representations of nature. Other environmental topics I have written and given lectures about include the anthropocene, species extinction and dinosaurs. A book about Rousseau and 18th century ideas about wilderness and mountains will be published in November 2017 (Ellerströms förlag).

Christine Hansen, PhD in History
Christine Hansen is currently co-ordinator of the environmental humanities network at Gothenburg University. Her research investigates the escalating risk of wild fire in peri-urban Australian environments, focusing on the notion of ‘solistalgia’ and the experience of grief in both historical and contemporary settings in the wake of devastating environmental disasters.

Rut Blomqvist, PhD Student in English
Through a transdisciplinary approach, I study how works in the emerging climate fiction genre deal with environmental issues and how they envision a sustainable future. The authors I focus on – currently Kim Stanley Robinson, Margaret Atwood, and Jonathon Porritt – explicitly engage, both through their fiction and as public figures, in the environmental movement.

Martin Hultman, Senior Lecturer in Human Geography
Martin Hultman is engaged in local politics organising events around ecotourism, popular science and transition. His current research revolves around issues such as posthumanities ethics, ecofeminism, environmental utopias, climate change denial and ecopreneurship historically as well as contemporary.
