Exploring Eco-Discourses - an interdisciplinary Research School

From Oct. 09-11, Linguistics will host the workshop “Exploring Eco-Discourses – An Interdisciplinary Research School.”
Young scholars from all disciplines who deal with ‘eco-discourses’ are invited. Here we ask about the role of language and communication in the discourse around ecological issues and problem areas such as Fridays for Future. The focus is on the interdisciplinary networking of the research field as well as the methodological reflection of normative attitudes around ecological issues.

The Call for Papers with all further information can be found here:

The BioDivKultur project is funded by the Research Initiative for Biodiversity Conservation of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
