Keynote presentations

The abstracts of keynote speakers’ presentations are available and they look stunning. In the diversity of perspectives, they engage the Nature, Society and Scale theme as well as collaboration across disciplines in ways that surely will spark interesting discussions during the conference. Concisely, they address the role of affect in policy and climate change (Manderson), the challenges of carrying out interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research in disaster health (Horwell), emergencies and disasters as key to understanding wider social phenomena and political logics (Nguyen), and human activities and changes in compound extremes (AghaKouchak).
