Seasonal Journalism as Vernacular Phenology

About the project

As a much-needed supplement to research on technological climate change solutions, this humanities-based project investigates how experiences of climate change emerged as a ‘vernacular phenology’ — everyday expressions of engagements with “cyclical and seasonal natural occurrences” — in the significant but not studied part of journalistic products that re-occurs on an annual basis; what here is termed ‘seasonal journalism’ (e.g. articles on allergy every Spring).

The project is kindly supported by the Aarhus University Research Foundation.
