CFPs for 2 conference panels on participation and experiments

3S members Jason Chilvers and Helen Pallett are advertising two Calls for Papers for forthcoming conferences around the topic of experiments in participation, building on the work they have undertaken in the Remaking Energy Participation UKERC project.

Both conference panels are concerned with relational approaches to the study of participation and democracy – particularly taking a broader systemic or ecological perspective on participation’s models, issue-spaces, institutions and publics. The panels are also interested in including work which has actively tried to intervene in and experiment with participation and democracy, using this relational and systemic sensibility as a starting point.
