Main content

Dr. Aase Jeanette Kvanneid is interested in how the information on climate change as an abstract but physical process weaves in with conflicting and contradicting processes in society. She has recently defended her doctoral thesis on the same subject for the department of Social Anthropology in Bergen.The presentation will draw on cases she observed whilst on her doctoral fieldwork in the Shivalik Hills of North India, and indicate how these observations might contribute to a broader and more critical understanding of what climate change communication might do in Norway.

Dr. Aase Jeanette Kvanneid is a researcher at NORCE Research Center AS, Kristiansand, section for social science research. Her focus areas are society and climate change, climate change as a societal phenomenon and climate change as discourse.
