Kuckuck. Notizen zur Alltagskultur 2/20: “Climate” 

The issue 2/2020 of the magazine "kuckuck. Notizen zur Alltagskultur" aims to address the various aspects of climate from different interdisciplinary perspectives and to bring together the current debates on the cultural and social dimensions of climate change.

How can we approach climate as an object and field of research and what knowledge can we as cultural and social scientists contribute to make socio-cultural processes around climate change understandable and comprehensible?

Climate protest and activism, climate research, sensual and everyday dimensions of climate, negotiating climate knowledge and practices, morality and ethics, environmental awareness and sustainable consumption, green washing, post growth economics, climate and capitalism, climate conflicts and social inequalities - these and many other topics could be covered in the next issue.

We look forward to ideas and topic suggestions for scientific/essayistic or artistic contributions by April 19, 2020 to the following e-mail addresses:

Kuckuck. Notizen zur Alltagskultur 1/20 „to act/acting“ 

To act“ can be seen as a necessity, something one has to do, should or could do, but also as practice, as being processual or as something that is setting effects and has impact. 

„Kuckuck“ Issue 1/2020 is dedicated to „act/acting“, a term that has been broadly heard, described and theorised. The aim of this issue is therefore to assemble current discussions on acting, agents and actions that create new impulses to rethink „acting“. Acting, agents and actions can be approached from different perspectives: as social or political, as reciprocity between human and other-than-human entities, historical, contemporary, as potentials or limitations as well as the researchers’ responsibility to act in specific ways (or not).

 

We are looking forward to abstracts for scientific, essayistic and artistic contributions for Issue 01/20 “to act/acting” by 09th September 2019.
