Thesis Title

Climate Change, Rhetoric and Catastrophe

Research overview

My research investigates catastrophic narratives about climate change. Presently, this includes analysis of reports from defense organizations which are constructing scenarios about and preparing for "climate-driven" conflict. Guiding my critique of such narratives is an underlying concern for the consequences of describing climate change (and nature) as something we are "at war" with.
