The podcast “Intervention” serves as a megaphone for ongoing discussions and research in the environmental humanities. Johan Gärdebo and Eric Paglia began the podcast in 2014 and interviews have subsequently been conducted staff and students at the Division of History of Science, Technology and Environment.
We are happy to announce that EHL in collaboration with Miyase Christensen successfully applied for funding from Formas and that we will run a film festival, art and research event on environmental humanities this fall. The theme is Bridges. We will follow up on this not only in the program, but also in the choice of venues and the targeted audience. We aim to build bridges between different areas and the diversity in Stockholm, by reaching out to both academics and segregated groups. But we also aim to build bridges inside the Division between the different research themes we have going on here.
"I vanliga fall upplever människor obehag när en handling inte harmonierar med en intention, men om vi lyckas motivera det för oss själva kan vi leva med glappet. Ta flygandet. Det fortsätter att öka trots en ökad medvetenhet om klimathotet och flygets klimatpåverkan."
The last session of the Stories and Seeds film-forums will revolve around the idea of Earth as a spaceship with the film “Wall·E” (2008). The event will be chaired by Sabine Höhler, physicist and historian who currently heads the Division of History of Science, Technology and Environment at KTH. Sabine’s research interests cover the cultural history of science and technology, environmental history and feminist science and technology studies. Her work on the history of space flight and ecology focuses on Spaceship Earth as a key metaphor in the late twentieth-century debate over the world’s resources and the future of humanity.
