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.

Workshop highlights:

Fate, Luck and Fortune project

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.
