Ph.d: New Models on The Catwalk - Macroeconomic Models for Sustainability

Project Details


My PhD project focuses on economic models that incorporate various ecological aspects in order to perform new economic worlds and participate in transition processes. I try to analyse how and by what elements such models are composed and how they operate in different institutional settings to change or maintain various economic worlds and courses of action.

I apply a wide range of analytical methods in the project, but some of the more important comes from STS and literary analysis. Thus notions such as performativity, modes of existence, narratives and semiotics are important keywords to the project.
