In addition to the presentations at the European Sociological Association Conference in September, members of our international team have been involved in hosting seminars and talks on aspects of our project.
On 8 December 2021, Dr. Arve Hansen of the Centre for Development and the Environment at the University of Oslo led a virtual seminar for the University of Bergen’s Centre for Climate and Energy Transformation. His talk covered the adaptation of household routines and habits to the ‘new normal’ during the pandemic, and how these altered routines can showcase the social dynamics of sustainable change. He also shared plans for future research. For more information about this seminar, please follow this link.
In addition to Dr. Hansen’s presentation, Dr. Mary Greene also presented her recent work on the disrupted urban mobilities of daily life during the COVID-19 pandemic. As part of a larger COVID-19 speaker series coordinated by Nick Clarke (University of Southampton), Clive Barnett (University of Exeter), Kirsty Pattrick and Jessica Scantlebury (Mass Observation Archive), and the British Academy, Mary Greene was one of 20 speakers who have presented as part of the seminar series over the past year. Her 10 November 2021 talk showcased research on mobility trends in the three cities of Oslo, Seattle, and Dublin, how these trends played out in daily life during the first year of the pandemic, and what this means for the impact of disruptions on the trajectories of mobility practices. More information about this speaker series, including a link to the video presentations, can be found here.
