Energy Humanities – Environment


Imre Szeman is a CIC Fellow and the University Research Chair in Communication Arts at the University of Waterloo. As part of his CIC fellowship, Imre will continue research in the area of study he helped found known as the ‘energy humanities’ which assesses the broad range of social changes necessary to enable and support shifts to more environmentally-sustainable uses of energy. Notably, as part of his research Imre intends to develop a socio-energy transition calculator that will allow Canadians to make choices about social transitions and immediately see their effects on energy use.
