This seminar will present a set of findings on everyday forms of resilience that locate resilience to global change within the lived experiences and narratives of people themselves. It discusses how resilience is understood and constructed at the interface of multiple, interlocking stressors.
Building on Katrina Brown’s recent book, Resilience, Development and Global Change, its starting point is to advance social dynamics, power and politics, voice and agency within our understanding of resilience in social ecological systems. It showcases recent work using participatory drama and creative arts to explore hidden dimensions and diverse perspectives on resilience, and suggest transformative solutions to address underlying vulnerabilities.
