Open University climate change and culture podcasts

This free series ‘Mediating Change‘, a great set of podcasts by The Open University, in partnership with The Ashden Trust, and FREE in iTunes.

Our generation has seen the topic of climate change become a major area of concern and research and a hotly contested discussion point in politics. This series of podcasts asks, “how do artists, writers, musicians and broadcasters respond when a new subject appears that is as large and significant as this? What kind of novels, plays, paintings, sculptures, movies and music begin to emerge?”

‘Mediating Change’ is a four-part series, chaired by BBC Radio 4’s Quentin Cooper, which looks at what happens when culture meets climate change. The panelists range from artists and curators to academics and journalists and together they explore the cultural response to climate change, looking at where it started, what it looks like today, who it’s aimed at and where it’s going.

Mediating Change‘ is free from iTunes

About Rebecca Enderby

I am a PhD student at King's College London, researching the politics of biofuels and their social and ecological impact in India. In general my interests lie within critical environmental geography, covering various issues around the environment, gender, power relations and the construction of nature. I am also a keen amateur photographer and I enjoy trying to capture some of my research interests through images, as well as photographing new environments, cultures and livelihoods. I am fascinated by bees, love yoga, art and photography, a good book, good coffee, Italian food and Turkish simit. I currently live in Bangalore, India, amongst Holy Cows and auto-wallahs, which I love, but my heart lies in London.
