Wiley Lecture 2022. Communicating climate change with comics: Life beyond apocalyptic imaginaries

Gemma Sou

Pages: 320-332 | First Published: 17 March 2023

Description unavailable 

Comics can be deployed as a multi-modal method that encourage researchers to develop thick descriptions of life with climate change and communicate the hidden experiences of climate change that are difficult to capture in words or other visual media. Comics can also visualise the multi-temporal, lived experiences of climate change and various still-possible climate futures that move beyond apocalyptic imaginaries. Finally, comics can increase the participatory nature of research and facilitate a move towards more ‘desire-based’ research frameworks that celebrate character-driven and anti-essentialist narratives.

Private rental investment and socio-spatial disadvantage in Sydney, Australia

Ryan van den Nouwelant, Hal Pawson, Kathleen Hulse, Margaret Reynolds, Chris Martin, Bill Randolph, Shanaka Herath

Pages: 349-361 | First Published: 19 February 2023

Description unavailable 

Small-scale landlords pursuing high rental yields from a low capital outlay are linked to an uneven growth rate of private rental as a tenure share within different parts of Sydney, Australia, and so to the subsequent geography of social disadvantage within the urban region.

Experimentation as infrastructure: Enacting transitions differently through diverse economy-environment assemblages in Aotearoa New Zealand

Angus Dowell, Nick Lewis, Ryan Jones

Pages: 362-376 | First Published: 20 February 2023

This paper brings the Social Studies of Economisation and Marketisation to a suite of diverse environmentally-focused economic development initiatives in New Zealand. We argue that the initiatives register an experimentation-led agenda for societal transitioning and that not only is experimentation a pivotal mode of economisation, but it can cohere into an experimentation infrastructure that has a wider collective potentiality, offering us other ways to stimulate processes of transitioning.

Spatial and temporal dynamics of the urban heat island effect in a small Brazilian city

Maria Clara Aparecida Ribeiro, Leandro de Godoi Pinton, Renata dos Santos Cardoso, Margarete Cristiane de Costa Trindade Amorim

Pages: 377-389 | First Published: 15 January 2023

Description unavailable 

We examined the spatial and temporal patterns of the canopy layer of urban heat islands in a small city in southeastern Brazil using the local climate zone (LCZ) system. Thermal contrasts of ΔTLCZ 3 − D in the study area reveal significant evidence that small cities can have as strong heat islands as bigger cities.
