The power and the water: connecting pasts with futures

This project will examine the nature of environmental connectivities since industrialisation and how their legacies challenge us in the early 21st century. The team will investigate how different environmental narratives are deployed in particular places and contexts; how these narratives interact, seek to link communities and their environmental impacts, connect designated environmental experts, publics and policymakers; and how, in turn, they shape identities and forge new communities of understanding, shared infrastructure and political action. They will also consider shared negative experiences affecting community resilience, social learning and environmental policy response.
