CreaTures seminar #8: Maarten Hajer

Situationist Politics: why we need to study drama to act on climate change

In his talk Professor Maarten Hajer, director of the Urban Futures Studio at the University of Utrecht, explored the value of dramaturgical analysis for understanding the politics of climate change. He drew upon the historical example of the Situationist International of the 1960s revealing the omissions in our current thinking about the cultural politics of climate change.
