Durham Energy Institute Masterclass: Context and Challenges: 31 October to 4th November 2016

Held at Durham University this four and a half day course brings together leading experts to assess today’s energy challenges in different contexts. From global geo-histories of energy and energy transitions to human eco-biology and resource engineering, we look at energy from a range of different perspectives. With presentations from leading experts at Durham University, this will effectively be a series of masterclasses in energy contexts and challenges.

Contents include:

1.       global geo-histories of energy using archaeologies and histories of energy to highlight changing concepts of natural and ‘unnatural’ energy;

2.       contemporary political economies of energy, global political issues, energy as a geopolitical tool, energy wars and energy transitions;

3.       social, political, economic, scientific and technological challenges facing societies today, interconnections in global energy and climate change contexts.
