Emotions and Environment

Environmental matters are among the most pressing and emotional issues in public life today. The researchers within the ‘Emotions and Environment’ cluster bring together a broad range of interdisciplinary expertise. (This cluster has ceased its activities.)

Our work spans the relations between human and non-human animals, so-called ‘invasive species’, climate change, fire, landscapes, oceans, and forests.

In 2015 we will hold a symposium, ‘Into the Woods’, which will take place at The University of Melbourne on July 22, alongside the Romantic Studies Association of Australia’s conference, ‘Rereading Romanticism: Imagination, Emotion, Nature, and Things’.  Past events involve the ‘Fire Stories’ conference in December 2013 and members of this cluster were also involved with the ‘Affective Habitus’ conference at ANU.  We also blog about our work at www.historiesofemotion.com.

Please explore these links for details of individual researchers and their projects and email Grace Moore (gmoo@unimelb.edu.au) if you could like to join the cluster, which is open to anyone applying emotions theory to environmental questions.
