Energy Ethics 2021 conference Energy Transitions and Planetary Futures, University of St. Andrews, October 25-27, 2021

This multidisciplinary 3-day virtual conference is organised by the Centre for Energy Ethics at the University of St Andrews.

In the lead-up to COP26, the conference will reflect carefully and critically on envisioned energy transitions and what they might entail. Bringing together researchers across the arts, humanities, social and natural sciences, the conference aims to ask: what visions of society and planetary futures are being put forth by energy transitions around the world? What will their implications be? And how will they be realised?

There is an exciting programme of talks, screenings, debates and opportunities for connecting with publishers and funders! Featuring:

  • 60+ papers from researchers across the arts, humanities & sciences, from 32+ universities
  • Keynote Addresses from Dr Dana Powell (Appalachian State University) and Prof Kim Fortun (University of California, Irvine)
  • Film Screenings & Q&As with Directors
  • Roundtable on “Just Transitions” & New Books on Energy Roundtable
  • Virtual Exhibit Hall to meet editors and pressers (including Berghahn, MIT Press, Duke University Press, Stanford University Press, Bloomsbury) and find out more about research centres working on energy in the UK

Registration is FREE and open to all.
