Energy, Environment, Culture - Institute on Culture and Society (June 13-17, 2014)

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • Every summer, the Institute on Culture and Society (ICS) gathers international scholars for an intensive five-day academic conference. Building on this tradition, the 2014 Institute will, for the first time in ICS history, focus its innovative research capacities on a central theme: \"Energy, Environment, Culture.\" The conference addresses two priority areas identified by SSHRC: Canadian Environmental Issues and Innovation, and Leadership and Prosperity. While promoting an understanding of energy in Canada and the United States, ICS 2014 will increase knowledge of environmental and sustainability issues with specific importance to Canada, from Northern sovereignty to energy security. To build networks between emerging scholars and experts in a number of fields, ICS will divide its focus into 3 streams: (1) Energy and Globalization; (2) Energy and Ecology; and (3) Energy and Community Practices. Each research stream will contribute to knowledge about the social, cultural, and environmental relations of energy systems in Canada and abroad.
