Society for Critical Studies of Crisis (SCSC), Spring 2021 Webinar Series on Critical Explorations of Crisis.

Aktivitet: Deltagit i eller arrangerat evenemangArrangerat workshop/ seminarium/ kurs


During spring of 2022, the SCSC will continue focusing on social resilience in crisis times. The webinar series is the result of a collaboration between the SCSC and the Social Resilience Theme launched by the Faculty of Social Sciences at Lund University. The Social Resilience Theme is devoted to stimulating critical cross- and interdisciplinary research on resilience, theoretically, methodologically, and empirically. Social resilience and crises tend to be intimately intertwined with one another. With this webinar series, we welcome various audiences to participate in examining social resilience in crisis times as shaped in various contexts.

Social resilience has been understood as the “ability of groups or communities to cope with external stresses and disturbances as a result of social, political and environmental change” (Adger 2000). The webinar series critically considers this approach as an entry to advance social sustainability research. The series thus sheds light on the ways in which a social science perspective on resilience distinguishes itself from other disciplinary understandings. That is, when is resilience ‘social’ and how do various disciplines render the notion meaningful?

With the series, we wish to promote the development of critical scholarship and establish an interdisciplinary network of scholars interested in pursuing research on social resilience in crisis times. During four webinars in spring 2022 Swedish and international scholars will discuss crisis and social resilience in relation to the topics of Climate, Gender, Work, Communication
