Qatar Foundation Launches New Energy Humanities Research Initiative


The Center for International and Regional Studies (CIRS) at Qatar Foundation partner Georgetown University in Qatar (GU-Q) launched its newly-formed Energy Humanities research initiative with a public webinar titled “Everyday Energy: Approaches to Lived Experience.”

The event featured leading experts in the field of Energy Humanities, a rapidly emerging field of study in the humanities and social sciences that examines the connections between energy and society. Through presentations and a question and answer session with the audience, the panellists laid out the many ways energy permeates all aspects of human and non-human life, and how it is inextricably linked with social, political, historical, economic, and cultural issues.
