Anthropologists have long engaged with questions of how people anticipate and act on predictions of the future. The Network for Anthropologies of Forecasting Weather and Climate (AnthFOR) encourages reflection on weather/climate forecast production, circulation and use. How are different types of evidence, institutions and experts produced, perceived and recognised? What can an anthropological lens contribute to our understanding of prediction, anticipation and intervention with respect to weather and climate?
Launched at a workshop in Oxford in May 2016, following the Royal Anthropological Institute’s 2016 conference on Anthropology, Weather and Climate Change, AnthFOR seeks to facilitate conversations among anthropologists and colleagues and collaborators in other disciplines. The network is convened by Sophie Haines and Sara de Wit (University of Oxford). Please use the contact form to get in touch with any questions.
