Call for papers: Curating climate change. Oslo, 28-29 October 2019



How do we narrate climatic change in a museum environment and initiate dialogue across its stakeholders? How can museums become ‘contact zones’ where science and education, activism and entertainment, debate and tourism interact productively?

This international workshop is free of charge and will take place in Oslo’s botanical garden, the site of the new Climate House (Klimahuset) to be opened in 2020. The event is funded by the Oslo School of Environmental Humanities (OSEH) as a long-term collaboratory research project.

Subject to pending funding agreements, travel grants might be available for some applicants. Please send your one-page summary of your presentation and short CV by 15th August 2019 to:

Organisers: Prof Brita Brenna (University of Oslo), Prof Dominik Collet (Oslo School of Environmental Humanities), Torkjell Leira (Klimahuset Oslo), Morien Rees (ICOM’s working group on sustainability), Bergsveinn Thorsson (University of Oslo).
