The Travelling Scientist's Itinerary
This project began as a blog, The Travelling Scientist, inviting fellow academics to contribute with stories and reflections about academic travelling. The blog later expanded into a project, “Travelling Without Borders,” funded by KTH-Sustainability. The project allowed for more systematic work with the blog content that could be used for formulating an online survey on academic travelling, a workshop at KTH and an op-ed article “Klimatforskarna förvärrar utsläpp” [“Climate scientists aggravate emissions”] in one of the largest Swedish dailies, the Svenska Dagbladet.
The project also stimulated the writing of a peer-reviewed article, “The Travelling Scientist: Reflections on Aviated Knowledge Production in the Anthropocene” in Resilience: A Journal of the Environmental Humanities (in press, 2017), and was finalized with a panel debate featuring Kevin Anderson, Zennström Professor in Climate Change and Leadership at Uppsala University and Sigbritt Karlsson, president of the KTH Royal Institute of Technology.
