Environmental Culture Network
Co-ordinator, Anna Lora-Wainwright, Oxford
Dr. Jennifer Holdaway, Forhead (China Environment and Health Initiative and Social Science Research Council, Beijing)
Prof. Chen Ajiang, Sociology Dept. Hohai University
Dr. Thomas Johnson, Hong Kong City University
This network brings together scholars interested in the changing meaning of the environment. It promotes the study of rising varieties of ‘environmental culture’ among China’s citizens, state agencies and non-governmental bodies alike. It supports a series of reciprocal visits between the network coordinator and external partners. It will also support a workshop held at Oxford that brings together the network collaborators and some additional speakers. These activities will form the foundations for a UK-based but international, interdisciplinary network of scholars interested in China’s evolving environmental culture and citizens’ activism around environmental problems.
