Active Participation: The workshop is meant to generate ideas, which means that we don’t expect polished or highly developed insights. Feel free to contribute fleeting thoughts or speculative ideas during the discussions. Get curious and ask about terms or concepts you don’t understand. After our speaker presentations (approx. 45 minutes), we will open the online room to discussion and questions, both typed in the chat box and voiced.
Recording: This session will be recorded.
Workshop outcomes: We hope that the workshop will provide some ideas about the means, possibilities, and challenges of decarbonizing our research processes. The ideas generated at the workshop could be particularly relevant for designing future research projects or funding applications. Outcomes of the workshop will include a blog post for the Irish Humanities Alliance blog series, etc., and we hope that this workshop will inspire collaboration and networking between our online participants
