Forest Social: Beyond feelings and logic in the forest debate

seminars, workshops |
Klara Härgestam

The Forest Social lecture series invites Klara Härgestam, Doctoral student in Rhetoric at Örebro University. She will present her research project on people's relationships to the forest, and how it impacts the forest debate.

The polarised debate about our forests in media do not shed light upon deeper aspects of people's experiences. This study is based on fieldwork among people connected to the forest in different ways: landowners, people working for the forest industry, and people engaged in protecting forests.

Härgestam’s main question is: How does people’s relationship with the forest in terms of identity, temporality and place impact their positions in the forest debate?
