Project: Narrating Science as a World-Making Activity: Sea-level Rise in Singapore

Using the small, vulnerable state of Singapore as a case study, this project examines if and how narratives about climate change and sea level rise from the arts, popular culture, and science journalism enter into political discourses and policy-making. Singapore was chosen for the case study because of its relatively small policy sphere and acute problem with sea level rise, but candidates are welcome to suggest a different regional emphasis that may fit better with their experience.

If you have questions about this position after reading the detailed call, please contact the project leader.
