(Dis)Comforts of Home: Cross-Cultural Perspectives on Domestic Energy Use

15 August 2012

13-14 September 2012

The (Dis)Comforts of Home: Cross-Cultural Perspectives on Domestic Energy Use is a two-day symposium at UCL exploring how comparative cultural perspectives on the concepts of ‘home’ and ‘comfort’ can help us understand, learn from, and influence the behaviour that drives domestic energy consumption.

Funded by the Faculty Institute of Graduate Studies (FIGS) of UCL Faculty of Arts and Humanities, and the UCL Grand Challenge of Sustainable Cities, the symposium features papers by some fifteen academics and postgraduates from the School of European Languages, Culture and Society, SSEES, Geography, Anthropology, Science and Technology Studies, the UCL Energy Institute, Urban Lab, the London Consortium, and more.

It also features two documentary screenings with panel discussion, both of which are open to the public. 

Please visit the event blog at for more information about the programme, contact information, and how to register.

The symposium and screenings are free of charge, but places are limited; please register in advance via the blog.
