Seminar Room 9, University of Liverpool in London, 33 Finsbury Square, London, EC2A 1AG

The Fate, Luck and Fortune project's final workshop investigated whether and how conceptualisations of fate, luck and fortune remain powerful in current, as well as historical, popular discourses concerned with environmental risks.

Fate, Luck and Fortune project

How do we talk about the risks of our environment? Who do we blame when things go wrong?

This is one of a series of AHRC-funded events which set out to explore how concepts of fate, luck and fortune influence perceptions of agency in different types of narratives concerned with environmental risk.
