Autumn 2014:

Sense of place and resilience in social-ecological systems, Richard Stedman & Maria Tengö, 3 hp, 7 October (open to SRC students only)

The aim of this course is to explore a number of crucial potential intersections between theory and method related to sense of place and social-ecological systems (in general) and resilience concerns.  Especially if we take seriously the material environment as underpinning sense of place, sense of place represents a potential key—and underappreciated--“coupling” mechanism in coupled SES and as such relevant for understanding dynamics of social-ecological systems and implications for resilience, in particular in relation to “reconnecting to the biosphere” and transformation. However, the literatures around these areas rarely intersect (a startling lack of intersection, as a matter of fact). In the course, we will discuss the sets of literature, how their different disciplinary positions/standpoints contributed to the gaps.
