About the King's Climate Activity Hub
King’s Climate brings together members of the Department who study climate and its changes across time and space and the interactions of these changes with people and their social and political organisation. These interests are diverse, but are grouped around four main areas of research:
- Paleo and historical climates for example, paleoclimates of the Sahel-Sahara; social and physical histories of El Niño
- Climate, knowledge and culture – for example, knowledge-making practices of the United Nations’ IPCC; cultural representations of climate change
- Climate risks and adaptation – for example, the politics of flooding; learning from historical cases of adaptation; climate and migration
- Climate change discourses and politics – for example, discourses of climate engineering; the politics of climate pragmatism
King’s Climate provides a convening space to promote collaboration between science, social science and humanities expertise around climate change, both within the Department and across King’s College London.
