Climate Change & Culture in the Great Plains

2021 Great Plains Conference

Date: Time: 8:45 am–5:00 pm
Online via Zoom
Contact: Katie Nieland, (402) 472-3965, knieland2@unl.edu
How did climate change become such a divisive issue? How does culture—meaning the beliefs, values, social practices, language, and attitudes by which we organize daily life—affect our understanding of climate change and limit or advance our possibilities for addressing it? Why have some embraced climate change denial and tried to delegitimize climate science? How can literature, art, history, politics, economics, psychology, language, and other social science and humanities disciplines bring new and constructive ways of communicating? And how can we move beyond the cultural impasse over climate change? These questions motivate “Climate Change & Culture in the Great Plains.”

Climate Change and Culture in the Great Plains was postponed from April 9-10, 2020, to today. It is a free, Zoom conference that requires registration.
