Research projects

  • IMAGINE – Contested Futures of Sustainability

    When you think about the future, what do you imagine? Flying cars, tubed food, or high-tech clothing might be among the images that come to mind. IMAGINE sets out to study these images of the future as imaginaries. Imaginaries are the many ways in which we humans think about the future and ways in which they can become possible. Our project looks specifically at how we imagine sustainable futures.

  • REDUCE – Rethinking Everyday Plastics

    The project will look at plastic in a systems perspective and investigate how the consumption of plastic products in everyday life can be reduced.
