The conceptual foundations of the comparative planetary imaginaries

It matters which planet we portray, and which one we do not. In this workshop, participants will learn about ways of mattering. With this term, we refer to the images, interests and facts that shape our image of the planet, and, in turn, how the solidification of these imaginaries determines the way we talk about the Earth and the decisions we make. Mattering looks at both the matter itself and its significance. In short, we research the drivers behind how we see our environment.

Please note:
Number of participants: 15
Language: English

This workshop is presented in the context of More-than-Planet and co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
