Research title

United States and Australian Coal Industry responses to the threats of climate change (1988 to 2014): An analysis using the "Dialectical Issue Life-Cycle Model".

Research project

Marc Hudson

The research Marc is undertaking is concerned with the responses – technical, political, economic, social – made by coal industry companies in Australia and the United States in response to climate change since the late 1980s.

More precisely, he is testing and refining the Dialectical Issue LifeCycle (DILC) model, a novel heuristic framework that builds upon previous “issue attention cycle” theorising. Empirical work will (probably) involve:

  • archival work
  • discourse analysis
  • interviews
  • other techniques.
