Spaces of experience and horizons of expectation: the implications of extreme weather events, past, present and future

There is growing concern over the impact of interannual climate variability and anomalous and “extreme” weather events such as droughts, floods, storms and unusually high or low temperatures. This project will examine the nature, timing and socio-economic and cultural consequences of, and responses to, climatic extremes in the UK, looking at case studies between 1700 and the present. This study will employ a combination of archival investigation and oral history approaches in order to reconstruct episodes of extreme weather and to explore whether and how these events affected the lives of local people and became inscribed into the cultural fabric and social memory of selected local communities within the case study regions. The project will also explore how the recording of these events has changed over time and is still changing.
