Transition in Energy, Culture and Society (TECS)

Transition in Energy, Culture and Society advances research in the Energy Humanities by focusing on social and cultural dimensions of energy transition. Inspired by an understanding of energy as not just brute input but also social relation – a matter of habits, practices, beliefs, and desires that we tend to take for granted and that often seem to have little to do with issues of energy – the researchers involved with TECS use qualitative methods of creative critique to address and envision aspects of social life that we might need or want to change in the course of large-scale shifts in energy system.


We are pursuing this research by way of several integrated projects: two graphic narratives on energy impasse and energy transition; undergraduate student outreach on energy use; a digital platform on energy transition; and a multi-faceted project on energy transition and the suburban imaginary.
