Occupy Climate Change! Goes Global: OCCUPY YOUR COURSE

Occupy Climate Change! calls up a coalition of researchers and students to explore and foster new social imaginaries to change the system, not the climate. Four workshops to meet, discuss and plan our collective work. The lectures will be recorded and made available online.

Time: Fri 2021-03-26 16.00 - 18.30

Location: KTH-SE.ZOOM.US/J/67145852746


OCC! has the ambition to blend teaching and research, involving students in the project. In this workshop Julie Sze and Robert Gioielli will guide us to reflect on this; but we will also experiment it during the workshop.  

Julie Sze is an Associate Professor of American Studies at UC Davis and founding director of the Environmental Justice Project for the John Muir Institute for the Environment at UC Davis. Her first book, Noxious New York (MIT Press), won the 2008 John Hope Franklin Award for the best book published in American Studies.

Robert Gioielli is an associate professor of history at the University of Cincinnati Blue Ash College, where he has taught since 2011. An environmental and urban historian, he is the author of Environmental Activism and the Urban Crisis: Baltimore, St. Louis, Chicago.

Please also join the last workshop when Occupy Climate Change goes Global:

1000 People's climate plans (lectures by Aurash Khawarzad, Yates McKee, and Ashley Dawson; and Maria Federica Palestino and Gilda Berruti)

  • March 29, 4-6 PM CET

The Peoples’ climate plan is an idea generated by the New York OCC! hybrid collective. The ambition is to plan the future of our city with the people who are and will be most affected by climate change. In the workshop we will discuss its methodological premises and practical challenges.
