Project threads

Future Pasts research is guided by four core research questions, or overarching project threads:

 

How are ‘the past’ and constructions of ‘pastness’ being fashioned into new green materialities that act to perform ‘green economy’ responses to ecological crisis?

How do the new green materialities identifed in (1) intersect with differing cultural conceptions of environmental change and sustainability?

How can archival and repeat landscape photographs anchor understandings of environmental change, constructions of environmental pasts, and visionings of environmental futures?

What normative assumptions underpin contemporary sustainability technologies and innovations, and what are the philosophical implications of juxtaposing these with other(ed) ‘ecocultural’ ethical frameworks?
