The course 'Climate exchanges: Language, Media and Politics' aims at a cross-disciplinary meeting between plenary speakers and PhD candidates on some of the crucial questions related to climate change: its representation, diffusion and interpretation in various contexts. Perspectives from natural, media, political and linguistic sciences will be raised, and various methodological approaches will be demonstrated.
