Call for contributions for the conference “Families and Environmental Changes” (Marseille, June 2023)

Call for contributions to the conference “Families and kinship in the face of environmental upheaval: mutations and resistances?” to be held at the Centre Norbert Elias, in Marseille on June 5, 2023.

Scientific coordination: Pierre-Yves Wauthier (Centre Norbert Elias/EHESS) and Florence Weber (CMH-INES/ENS).

Environmental changes have been impacting the living conditions of several populations around the world, at different times. In response to current climate changes, environmental policies encourage and imply profound changes in our ways of life. This conference proposes to examine in what ways do adaptations to environmental changes contribute, or could they contribute, to affect family life and/or kinship relationships. The conference will be held on June 5, 2023 at the Centre Norbert Elias Marseille. It is open to any social science researchers interested in these topics in order to exchange knowledge, identify avenues of research and build a multidisciplinary network. (more…)
