Interest in extremes and crisis (as well as Apocalypse) has rarely been higher than it is today. This spans across many domains including environmental, political, social, technological, business, economic and legal spheres of life. With uncertainty (my research topic) and conflict appearing to be ever present these days Crisis, Extremes, and Apocalypse are areas of importance, debate and great interest.
Crisis, Extremes, and Apocalypse Research
Research in these areas of great importance and connect very closely with many other areas including my own of uncertainty. Colleagues over on the Woodstock Road, at the Oxford Research Centre in The Humanities (known as TORCH) have just published their Crisis, Extremes, and Apocalypse website site addition to the Torch pages.
Nicely organised and interesting to both the casual reader and researchers alike this microsite offers much of interest. The Crisis, Extremes, and Apocalypse team is currently a small group of three researchers (part of the Oxford Research Centre in The Humanities) but they are producting some very interesting findings and articles.
The main interesting areas of the site are News, Upcoming Events (some of which are streamed if you aren’t fortunate enough to live in or close to Oxford) and their blog. As the site has just started the content is ‘growing’, – you saw it here first. It is well worth a visit.
This is an excellent venture and the site is well worth a visit, keeping an eye on and a poke around as it has some interesting stuff. The general TORCH website is also packed with loads of fascinating and useful articles and papers. You can get the main TORCH site here.
You can also follow the group on Twitter through the main TORCH Twitter account @TORCHOxford
