Call for Papers: World Social Science Forum
 

We would like to draw your attention to the following call for papers for our session OP4-01 Transformation in coastal zones: Coping with global change at the World Social Sciences Forum 2018 in Fukuoka, Japan, 25-28 September 2018.

In this panel, we aim to critically explore the assumptions, triggers, catalysts and motivations for transformation in the contexts of coastal realms. We ask whether the concept of transformation is adequate to cope with the complexities of global social and environmental change and innovation, with aspirations for sustainable development set by the 2030 Agenda, but also with issues of power and representation across scale and social positioning as they manifest in coastal areas.

For more details about the session see: http://www.wssf2018.org/session-parallel-02-list.html#a_p4

Abstracts may be submitted through the conference website via: http://www.wssf2018.org/call-for-papers.html

Submission deadline for papers is 17 March 2017.

Invitation: Workshop on marine social science in Mai 2018 

 

Dear researcher doing marine social sciences in Germany,


The strategy group of social sciences and humanities of the Consortium of German Marine Research is aiming to network, connect and organize social sciences researchers interested in the coastal and marine realm. Following a more strategic meeting on the 24th of May (which you are welcome to attend; it is in German), we want to organize a workshop focusing on concrete research on the 25th of May. The Marine Coastal Cultures network (MCC) that hosted the „Coastal and Marine Epistemologies Roundtable“ in Hamburg last year will organize a thematic session as part of the workshop agenda.

Co-Author Prof. Dr. Silja Klepp: World Ocean Review 5 - Coasts, A Vital Habitat Under Pressure

 

Aus Politik und Zeitgeschichte: Wald  The fifth World Ocean Review (WOR) explores the
  coastal habitat and the diverse expectations upon
  this habitat. It provides a glimpse into millions of
  years of history, elucidates the theory of continental
  drift and discusses the many ways in which coasts
  have changed. It also illustrates how the diverse
  ecosystem services rendered by the coasts are
  being subjected to increasing pressure, and profiles
  measures that will be necessary in the future to
  respond effectively to the threats from both climate
  change and natural disasters.

Poster kritnet











After two successful applications in 2006 and 2012, Kiel marine researchers today (September 29) have cleared the first hurdle to submitting a new large-scale research proposal within the framework of the German Excellence Strategy. The new research project "Future Ocean Sustainability" is thus one of the positively assessed applications in the pre-selection.
