These days, it is impossible to ignore the theme of ‘climate change’. Climate change is a much broader topic than that of global warming, and it directly or indirectly influences all of our research fields. Therefore, we would like to invite you, as critical PhD-students, to present on how climate change affects your work at present, and how you foresee it impacting future research efforts in your discipline. Two key speakers, Dr. Pete Smith and Dr. Laura Colucci-Gray, will give two inspiring talks about how climate change affects their research fields. As well two to three panels with PhD-researchers from different disciplines will speak and discuss the consequences of how they are dealing with the changing academic environments. SUBMIT A PAPER. Students from politics, economics, engineering, and the natural sciences may perhaps find this call for papers most attractive.

However, we are highly interested in how the fields of history, philosophy, divinity, languages, anthropology, geography, sociology might also interact with this important theme. Here are a list of questions that you might like to consider or reflect on for your presentation: • How have attitudes of citizens towards environmental issues/ climate change/ sustainable solutions influenced/ changed over recent decades? • How are conversations, debates and dialogues on environmental issues arranged within different societies at present? • What are the risks presented for the health of world populations and current ecosystems in light of climate change? • How might religious views and theologies shape the attitudes of citizens towards environmental issues? • Global climate policies and the dynamics of international leadership of the climate change agenda; • What effect will the decision by the Trump administration to withdraw from the Paris Agreement have on global commitments to combat climate change? • How can SMART cities contribute to the change of day-to-day life of world populations living in urban areas? The questions proposed above are just an indication of those that you might like to consider. Feel free to use your own creativity when submitting papers. If you prefer to make a poster presentation, those are more than welcome as well. Submit an abstract of 300 words maximum before October 15 st, 2017. You can send the abstract to: granite@abdn.ac.uk Please do not hesitate to contact us with questions regarding the conference and/or submitting a paper. Don’t forget to join the facebookpage & keep up to date from the latest news from Granite. Best, Despina Yiakoumi & Simone Haarbosch Granite Symposium 2017
