What does it mean to live a good life in a time when the human population keeps on growing, the oil age is coming to an end, the climate is changing, the oceans are turning more acidic, and fertile soils the world over are eroding?
Where do contemporary visions of the sustainable good life come from? What functions do they serve? How are they expressed in current transition processes? Is a sustainable and satisfying life possible for all?
Students who take this course will participate in the unfolding and consolidation of a timely research area with far-reaching implications both theoretically and practically. The PhD course will enable them to identify new and relevant problems, and to analyze, synthesize, and evaluate the convergence between ideas about sustainability and the good life.
We are accepting applications until 15 June 2012.
The PhD course will be hosted at the Centre for Development and the Environment at the University of Oslo between 10 - 14 September 2012.
