Low-Carbon Research Methods Group

The Low-Carbon Research Methods Group is a loosely affiliated group of scholars interested in examining how climate change not only stands to alter what we study, but also how we do so.

Working across different methodological traditions, as well as discursive and nondiscursive forms of inquiry, the research group seeks to explore the social and institutional prospects of decarbonizing academia, as well as the equity and epistemological gains that might be won thereby.

The research group is currently coordinated by Anne Pasek of Trent University.

This website is hosted on the Solar Protocol Network in a Peterborough backyard.
