Transcript Title: ENERGY&CLIMATE POL

Course Description: The seminar begins with a historical overview of the different eras of energy use, from wood to shale gas. It starts with the industrial revolution and follows the energetic and social upheavals to the present day. Within each era, the course considers how societies and epochs are conditioned by their main source of energy and how international politics is to be understood as energy policy. The second half of the semester turns to climate policy. The scientific history of the topic is covered including the 1980s, the rise of UN climate diplomacy, and the hegemonic struggles over the interpretation of climate change and climate protection. The guiding question here is the connection between the interests of the institutions expressing themselves and the resulting positioning in climate policy.
