‘Political imaginaries and climate change’ in the DiscourseNet network

At the invitation of the organizers of the seminar series on ‘Discourse and Sustainability,’ Anabela Carvalho presented a seminar titled ‘Political imaginaries and climate change’ on December 15, 2023, via video conference. In addition to exploring the concept of political imaginaries and the theorization of related matters, the presentation analyzed a set of recent protests by the groups Climáximo and Greve Climática Estudantil Lisboa (GCE-Lisboa), their websites, and press articles written by activists from GCE-Lisboa.

The ‘Discourse and Sustainability’ series is led by Michael Farrelly from the University of Hull and Michael Kraenert from the University of Southampton. It is part of the working group with the same title within the DiscourseNet network, a collaborative network focused on Discourse Studies.
