Environmental politics (particularly food & agriculture, climate change, energy justice/security, sustainability, shale gas, underground coal gasification), culture and politics, discourse analysis and narrative politics
Hannes Stephan graduated from King’s College London and completed his PhD at Keele University in 2009 (on the cultural politics of genetically modified organisms).
Since then, he worked as a research fellow at Keele University and at Lund University, Sweden, joining the University of Stirling in 2012. He teaches three environment-related modules and conducts research on international and national environmental politics.
His current research examines low-carbon energy transitions through the lenses of energy security, energy justice, narrative politics, and discourse coalitions, with a particular focus on unconventional gas extraction (shale gas, underground coal gasification).
He is a co-convenor of the Environmental Politics Standing Group of the European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR).
