Guggenheim Project: Cause and Blame in the Anthropocene

I am a Guggenheim Fellow at the Wagner School of NYU and at the Anthropology Program at City University of New York’s Graduate Center for the 2018-19 academic year. My project focuses on how the causes and causal analytics of climate crises become problematic and contested due to their links to responsibility, blame and possible response. This project uses cases of crisis and debates on crisis explanation, to explore how causality is treated by social scientists, climate change modelers, development practitioners and policy makers.
