Since the rise of debates on climate changes and environmental changes within academia and beyond, energy related issues have been integral to communicating the transformation of value paradigm of the energy dependent society. The focus on studying energy storytelling within ‘literary energy narrative frames’ (Goodbody 2018) allows distinguishing socio-cultural dimensions of energy, regarded not only as a resource but also as a societal value. Responding to energy humanities’ agenda in debating energy storytelling and energy narratives for translating the energetic history, interpreting our energy dependable present and predicting the energetic future, this online event intends to use ‘ energy storytelling’ as a starting point to discuss the contemporary multidisciplinary perspectives on using stories, narratives in highlighting the critical role of energy in shaping our energy dependence. The event participants are invited to share their opinions on the ideas, raised in Moezzi, M., Jandab, K. (2017) Using stories, narratives, and storytelling in energy and climate change research.
