Instructions for seminar 7 (Oct 9)

Seminar 7 will be held on Tuesday Oct 9 (10-12 for groups A/B and 13-15 for groups C/D).

This is the last seminar - a possibility to wrap up and discuss all the issues that we have touched upon in this course. You will have heard the panelists' discussions on Oct 8, and their proposed images of the future. For this seminar, you are supposed to read one text (see below) and think about the following question:
- What is your image(s) of the future and has it changed during the course? Furthermore you should prepare for the seminar by handing in two questions for the seminar, see instructions below.

Read the paper
Hoffman, A. (2012) , "Climate Science as Culture War", http://www.ssireview.org/articles/entry/climate_science_as_culture_war.

Formulate one question based on the panel on Oct 8, and one question based on the Hoffman paper and hand it in by using this form: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dFlxMHdpNGVmWVdZcFdiUW84RURIYUE6MQ
If you did not hear the panel discussion,  then instead please formulate two questions based on the content of the paper.

Deadline for handing in these questions: Wednesday TUESDAY Oct 9 at 09.00.

Do note that not preparing adequately for the seminar entails the risk of not receiving top points (2 p) for the seminar (which might naturally have adverse effects on your grades).
