Martin Hultman

Associate professor in science-, technology- and environmental studies at the Department of Technology Management and Economics.

Why don't we act when we have known the challenges of climate change for over thirty years? Such are the questions I deal with in my research when doing in-depth empirical studies creatively combined with concepts from ecofeminism, posthumanities, discourse analysis and actor-network theory. At the moment I'm the research leader of a three year project dealing with social- and ecological entrepreneurship in the circular economy and one about climate change denialism. Simultaneously I develop knowledge around energy transitions, masculinities and environment.
