D. Haraway 2016. Staying with the trouble

Research position

Juan de la Cierva-Inc post-doctoral fellow at the Basque Center for Climate Change (BC3). My research focuses on knowledge co-production in the collapsing social-ecological system of the Mar Menor lagoon (Murcia, Spain). I apply participatory research methods to explore societal factors behind ecological collapse including scientific controversy and uncertainty, political polarization and associated collective emotions.

In this research project I build upon my previous research topics to foster new interests, as outlined below.

New research lines

  • Knowledge co-production on wicked social-ecological issues
  • Relational uncertainty
  • Emotional turn in sustainability
  • Citizen assemblies, mini-publics and deliberative formats for environmental governance

Previous research lines

  • Narrative research
  • Online-offline participation
  • Water governance
  • Water-Energy-Food nexus
  • Science for governance & actionable knowledge
