Socialising Nitrogen

  • Lancaster Environment Centre Lancaster University UK (map)

A one-day conference with scholars working actively on socialising nitrogen across the arts, social sciences and humanities.

“Reactive nitrogen pollution is one of the biggest environmental issues in the world, and yet very little social science exists exploring the role of nitrogen in society and its effects for more-than-human communities. Where carbon has prompted a range of responses from the social sciences and humanities, nitrogen (and wider chemistry more generally) remains markedly understudied. With this conference we aim to bring together a range of scholars working on “socialising” nitrogen from across the arts, social sciences and humanities.”

With Emma Cardwll (University of Glasgow), Mark Sutton (CEH), Clare Waterton (Lancaster University), Jesse Peterson, Frieda Gesing, Matthew Huber, Rachel Dunn, Arnaud Page, Day Reay (University of Edinburgh) and a discussion around a manifesto for socialising nitrogen.
