Climate, Environment and Food connections – Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Societal Resilience

  • Date:
  • Location: Engelska parken House 22: 0031
  • Organiser: Marco Hostettler (University of Bern), Erika Weiberg (Uppsala University), Martin Finné (Uppsala University) and Centre for Integrated Research on Culture and Society (CIRCUS)
  • Contact person: Marco Hostettler
  • Workshop

This interdisciplinary workshop addresses drivers of climate and environmental change as well as societal responses towards these changes across time and space with a special focus on food production. It brings together researchers from Uppsala University, the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (Uppsala), Boston University (United States) and the University of Bern (Switzerland).

Human societies continuously transform their environments through land use and food production. At the same time, food production systems have always been vulnerable to climate and environmental change as important conditions such as access to fresh water and ecosystem services may be affected. Applied case studies from different research fields such as archaeology, human and physical geography and agronomy will offer insights into current research questions and results, bridging a wide variety of methods and, chronological and geographical settings.
