Fate, Luck and Fortune project Workshop 2: Political narratives of environmental risk
University of Nottingham
The second workshop of the network investigated how conceptions of fate, luck and fortune, and related notions of risk and agency, play out in political and organisational discourses.
How do we talk about the risks of our environment? Who do we blame when things go wrong?
This is one of a series of AHRC-funded events which set out to explore how concepts of fate, luck and fortune influence perceptions of agency in different types of narratives concerned with environmental risk.
