Digital Diffusion of Non-Dominant Knowledge Systems

This project explores the potentials and limitations of information and communication technologies
(ICTs) for facilitating the interaction of different knowledge systems in the co-production of global
climate change knowledge and policy. The Arctic provides an ideal site for this research since the
region showcases strong climate change concerns and stakeholders that represent diverse knowledge
systems. Within this context the project asks the following questions:
1. How do different discourses about Arctic climate change unfold across digital spaces?
2. What epistemic resources do each of these discourses enroll, and how does their enrollment normalize
or marginalize particular knowledge systems?
3. How do Arctic stakeholders digitally translate climate change information across diverse epistemic
domains in pursuit of their goals?
