The Society, Environment and Emotions Lab aims to see things differently. We are on the lookout for new approaches to how research can be done and how environmental problems should be tackled. Along the way, we're actively creating a new academic culture: one that is non-hierarchical, inclusive and collaborative, with a healthy dose of adventure, curiosity and fun.
Things that need to be normalized in the academic process and careers: rejection; failure; uncertainty; not knowing; shitty first drafts (SFD).
Things that need to be demystified: how messy, time-consuming, frustrating etc research process can be; how much politics can part of the process, e.g., within a committee and/or publishing.
Things that need to be challenged outright: isolation; zero-sum thinking; 110% commitment at the expense of health and well-being; etc
